Pain on inner legs

User Profile
I've been having pain on both legs its like in the inner part of my bottom legs since March. I dont know what happend but I started with one foot and then with both. At first it just felt like a bruise and then it gets to the point where I can't even walk I have to drag my feet cause it seems like if my legs get stiff but with alot of pain. My doctor gave me inflammatory pills but that doesnt work cause the pain's still there. When I try to rest and try to get up the pain gets worse. I have a thyroid problem dont know if it has something to do with that also I have flat feet. The pain with time goes all the way down to my ankles dont know what to do or what doctor should I see can u help me... thank u

Thanks for using this forum...

The symptoms you are describing imply some nerve impingement at lumbar disc level..Iwould advice you to have an MRI scan of lumbar spine and show it to spine surgeon..

take care,...
