Unhappy Still looking for answers.

This time last year I was diagnosed with TTP .That's Thrombic thrombocytopenic purpurea.After a long list of complications with medications and doctors,I feel the same as I did the day I was diagnosed.I drag my left leg sometimes accompanied by great fatigue,confusion and weakness.They never once even looked at my leg.Today ,I am struggling with excruciating pain and numbness that radiates from my left leg,a horizontal band about three inches wide that wraps around the lower part of the femur just above my knee.
I have truly lost all hope in our business as usual healthcare system.

Re: Still looking for answers.

it sounds like your sciatic nerve has been damaged, or a main nerve in your spine. that causes leg weakness and even numbness.

have you tried visiting a chiropractor or seen a physical therapist?
