Hi everyone. new here. I have developed a new intense pain in my tibula and fibula and sometimes my femur bone. I am waking up from the pain and moaning myself awake. I am often rubbing the leg with my opposite foot in my sleep. It is occurring every day to some degree and now occassionally my hip bones hurt. I am diagnosed with fibro but this is bone pain. Neurotin does not help with the bone pain but the percocet that I take for the neck and shoulder pain for my C5-C7 discetomy and fusion does help. I don't know if this bone pain is related to the cervical fusion or to the fibro or if it is entirely independent issue. Anyone familiar with this type of bone pain?
This pain sounds severe and you really need to have xrays of involved areas and/or other studies such as bone scan. Some people with Vit D deficiency get significant leg pain at night, so a serum Vit D level could be done as well. It is important to distinguish whether this pain is bilateral (both sides) or just one side. It makes a difference in the causes to be considered. I hope you will see your Dr. and get some tests done.
