Question: Bone pain

 neverland - Sat May 13, 2006 7:04 pm

I am a female of 15 and have bone pain that has been increasing since the beginning of january. Most of the time I can no longer concentrate at school because it hurts so bad. It hurts most when I am just sitting or laying down but it also usually hurts when I walk. It hurts so much now that it often wakes me when Iam sleeping and makes me not able to sleep, and makes me cry.I went to my doctor a few days ago and she was concerned and had x-rays taken and a blood test but said she didn't see anything abnormal. She wants me to go to physical therapy, but I don't thnk it will help because I don't see it related to movement. It hurts when I walk but not because I walk. Also the day after I went to the doctor I noticed a bunch of tiny red dots that are spreading on my feet and legs under my skin. I don't know what to do because my doctor is saying it is nothing but it hurts too much to just be nothing. Any advice on what to do would be great.
Iam taking no medications, have had no injuries, do not play any sports

User avatar Hi neverland,
Has your physician examined the tiny red dots that you have described? Bone pain that wakes one up from sleep is abnormal and requires additional evaluation. Aside from the bone pain do you have any other symptoms, ie, swelling, nausea/vomiting, decreased appetite, weight loss, fevers, etc.?

Thank you for replying,
My doctor has not examined the tiny red dots on my legs, but I do plan on showing them to her soon I just wanted to make sure they didn't appear because of a reaction or something first. As for other symptoms I do get nausious alot, and now that you mention it I have had a few fevers in the past about two months. But they were kind of strange because I didn't have a cough, cold, nothing besides the fever and feeling nausious and having chills. Do you know what I should do? Thanks again for responding.
