I am a 51 y/o male that was diagnosed with Osgood Schlatters disease in my youth, then in my young adulthood was diagnosed with ostioarthritis in both knees which later progressed to both hips due to my gate, weight and activities. currently I have been experiencing a cramp in my extreme lower leg near my ankle below my shin on the side of each leg in what feels like the bone. The cramps are so severe that the only releif is to rub each leg bone where the cramp is with my forefinger and thumb as hard as I can almost feeling like I'm going to break the bone. What could possibly be causing this pain I've never had before. I might mention that I also have several back problems, multiple spurs throughout my body and heels, bad shoulder and arm pain from ostioarthritis and severe spinal pain from desicating disc. I'm just a basket case of ostioarthritis everywhere in my body.
I have had several exams, MRI's, CT's, bone density test, lower extremity blood flow exams and multiple other exams to no avail. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabeties just on the verg and could be taken off the medication any time if my count stays low enough. I've been on a diet and trying to lose weight to help manage the pain, but it comes and goes whenever it wants and is uncontrolable without causing a worse pain in my leg bones by rubbing them as hard as possible. Any kind of help will be beneficial in trying to find an aide in helping reduce the pain.
