Unexplained bilateral leg pain for almost a year!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am a 31 year old male that has been experiencing bilateral leg pain for nearly 10 months. Pain is mainly in thighs and calves. No weakness really, and no numbness. Some spasms... Usually okay if not walking or standing for an extended period of time, but will start to ache when doing so. Hot baths seem to help best.

Pain initially started the same day that I had a stomach bug. Not sure if it is a coincidence. I didn't really have a fever and the bug only lasted a day... Had a little arm soreness that lasted briefly but has subsided.

The only connection I have found was experiencing some rhabdo (high CK levels) a year and half ago after a very vigorous exercise session. I peed brown and went to the doctor. Took Advil and Tylenol. Pain was experienced in same parts of legs (thighs, calves) and I could hardly walk for a week. After that, I appeared to be fine (up until now).

Ive consulted a Rheumatologist and neurologist. Got EMG and long list of blood tests. All results were normal. If anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate it. The next step would be a biopsy but i'm a little reluctant..
