For the past year I have been having problems with my right leg and foot which could be due to several falls. When walking or standing I have pain in the top of my leg, numbness and a heavy feeling in my lower leg and foot, which is also swollen. A X Ray on my hip joint shows a little arthritis and my Doctor has prescribed six paracetamols per day. They do not relieve my condition though! I do not have pain in my back, bottom, or back of my leg.
I have tied rubbing creams, a tens machine, and stronger pain killers with no affect.
Any advise would be appreciated as being an active person all my life [90 yrs] this pain and inactivity are making me severely depressed.
