    Difficulty walking
    An_199794 posted:
    Has anyone ever wake up in the morning or from a nap and was unable to walk, have 102 degree and feel like death would be the best thing to take the symptoms away? Ever since I have had this problem, which by the way, no doctor has ever been able to put a diagnosis on it, I can not walk as good as I did before. And have good days and bad days. Any suggestion?

    I too have been having problems with my leg. My left leg was swollen from my knee up and below my knee. I actually went to the emergency room out of concern for blood clots. I was given a shot of dilatin for pain which I'm sure is a narcotic which really gave me pain relief that I have not felt in a while. Of course it wore off but I'm ashamed to say that I wouldn't mind getting another - lol. They gave me Motrin and sent me home. I have been suffering since and walking is very difficult. I really miss just walking and moving around. I do feel good when I am in water and plan on getting a perscription for water therapy so that I can move more.

    Anon---I don't normally ask this---have you gotten tested for Lyme? The pain sounds like Fibro, but a fever that high is usually not part of it. You might want to look into that. If you do, insist on getting the Western Blot test and ask for a printout of the results.
    Good luck, and let me know how you do.
