stiffed neck, back pain, right leg is colder than left leg

User Profile
I am suffering from stiffed neck, back pain, neck spasm, lumps in the joint of head and neck. Also i am unable to move my right leg most of the times because of my knee. I feel when i am in rest position nothing problematic happens but as soon as i move my leg or knee it takes me time till the blood flows to my entire legs and i am suffering from intense pain in my leg. My right leg is colder than my left leg most of the times. I am a type 1 diabetic also. What could be the possible reason of it? Please help me out.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Pain in eck, stiffness and leg pain worsening with posture is polyarthralgia and should be evaluated for rheumatological conditions. With type 1 diabetes is history , i would suggest considering autoimmune work up as well. Talk to your doctor and let them help you in this regard.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
