Hello! I am a 31 year old male that has been experiencing leg pain for the past couple years.
The pain is a burning/soreness in my thighs and calves that comes mainly have exertion/exercise. There is a chronic slight soreness though all the time.
3 years ago I endured some rhabdo (in my thighs/calves) from a spin cycle class. I appeared to be fine for a year after that (until this started).
I have seen a reumotolgist and 2 neurologists. Emg, blood tests, and open biopsy on thigh all NORMAL. I was convinced I had some sort of metabolic disorder, but it appears not.
The last neurologist I saw was the top doctor in Boston, and basically said I'm fine and that I 100 percent don't have a muscle disease. Said MRI is not warranted, and past rhabdo is not linked to this.
I don't know what to do because the pain is there if I exercise too much. It feels like I did a bunch of squats.
It is manageable if I don't exercise, but there is still soreness if I go up a lot of stairs or walk too much.
PLEASE help. ANYTHING. Could this be some crazy anxiety response? Stress?
