What Could It Be? Severe Leg Pain In Bone

I am a 51-year-old male who was diagnosed with Osgood Schlatters disease in my youth. Then, in my young adulthood, I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both knees, which later progressed to both hips due to my gait, weight, and activities. Currently I have been experiencing a cramp in my extreme lower leg near my ankle on the side of each leg in what feels like the bone. The cramps are so severe that the only relief is to rub each leg bone where the cramp is with my forefinger and thumb as hard as I can. What could possibly be causing this pain? I've never had it before.

Answer

Hi there, Rick -

Did you ever find out what was causing this pain? It sounds like it was really giving you a hard time. Perhaps you could detail what happened in the aftermath of it, and what you've done since then to manage the rest of your symptoms? It might be very helpful to other people experiencing the same problems.

Here are some links that you might useful! Best of luck to you.
