Leg ache, foot numbness.

Hello Everyone,

I'm a 42 year old male and have been having some weird foot/leg problems for about two years now. My doctor has done everything he can think of and has been unable to figure out whats going on. So, I'm looking for some advice on what I can suggest to him.

The pain has changed a few times since it initially started a couple years ago. It started on a walk where the pain would build up in my left ankle till I had to stop, after resting for a bit I was able to walk again until it built up again. Later I started getting a numbness on the bottom of my left foot and over time it has spread to be on the bottom of both feet. I also get pain on the top of my right foot.  Currently the new one is joint pain on right knee. The pain seems to get worse with low activity and taking walk seems to help sooth most of the symptom, but the right knee pain. I also have numbness of my left finger tips, but this has been happening for years now.

My doctor has done every test he can think of, including Nerve test, Neurological exam, two MRI (Head and Legs) and I've been tested twice for Diabetes and it came up negative (This is normally the first thing most people suggest), Acupuncture, Physical Therapy, Chiropractor. I also had blood tests for Vit D, Vit B12, Cratine Kinase that all came back as normal.

Any ideas on what I can suggest to him?

Thanks, alot.
