Another post about the leg symptoms..theories and questions?
Ok so for those of you who have read my leg symptoms post, I was thinking back today to when I was first being tested and the positive results I did have. My symptoms included: -burning leg pain(which eventually spread to my arms bearing the same symptoms) -leg ache(widespread not just limited to the joints)...Lately before the burning started coming back with this pregnancy, I realized I have tenderness in my legs where I usually have the burning..so is that muscular in origin? I ask because I used to have elevated CPK's in my bloodwork. Not very high (200s-300s) and was tested for the neuropathy but the only muscular test i had was the EMG's. Could those alone be conclusive or should a biopsy be done? I had one biopsy done but that was to check for small fiber neuropathy. I am just wondering if now the pain all along has been more muscular than nerves and if the tenderness im experiencing is able to be considered a type of "weakness" and could aide in diagnosis....?? Because then that would mean that with CPK might actually mean something! lol Just a thought..please comment! -Britt
