Hi, Having had Osteomylitis as a young child ( left shin ) I would be very interested to know how it affects people as the years go on. I am now 52 years old
For me , even though there isn't any sign of infection I have been in contact pain .Strangely not in the infected area but in my left leg. This horrible aching throbbing pain starts in my thigh and radiated down through my shin and into my foot. Its so bad that I have been on Fentanyl patches ( Durogesic DTrans 25 ) for years. This does not take the pain away but dulls it down. No one can tell me why I'm in pain . It's not fibromyalgia . Having seen numerous specialists, they have all said that this pain is NOT from having Osteomylitis as a child but I really beg to differ. No one can tell me why I'm in pain all the time . What has your long term effects been and what medication, if any ,have you found helped .
