I suffer from pain in both my legs and arms. It is a shooting pain mainly in the top half of my legs and 1 hip and sometimes in my arms. It feels like it is deep down maybe in the bones. I have this pain most of the time and it worsens when I go to bed. I have also got some numbness in my right side of the face and body at times. The pain become very intense at times that it stops me from doing things. I have been to my doctor and she told me I had shin splint and it would go away. I have now had this for about 2 years and it is getting worse. I am finding that paracetamol is no longer helping me deal with this pain. It is stabbing at times and I find myself grabbing the limb the pain is in and waiting for it to ease off. Sometimes it does not.I am becoming very frustrated with it and even worse I cant find a doctor who will investigate it. Always shin splint or bilateral flat feet go to a pediastrist.
Damn, That don't sound like shin splints to me. I'm not exactly sure what it could be, but it sounds like it may be a nerve problem. I had a Dr tell me I had the same thing over and over. I didn't find out I had RSD until I found a new Dr.. If you really don't think he's right and it may be something more then you might want to find a new Dr that will listen to you and actually do his job. Hope you find out what's wrong.
