HI, so I have a doctor's appointment this Friday and among looking into lupus and other issues I wanted my doctor to look into a problem I've always had with my legs that's getting worse.
My doctor said we are just starting the search and he ordered blood work just for basics but plans on going from there if the blood work comes back fine. that's just for my pain and fevers and stuff.
But I'm asking about my legs here because I wanted an idea what to suggest or bring up to my doctor about my legs. I stand and have always stood with my legs bend at the knee backwards since I was in kindergarten. I also walk with my knees touching they rub against each other and I kinda can walk straight I always wave to one side then the next. And my knees when I'm laying down seem off and bent and the knee caps look weird and sometimes feel like they are floating. So I wanted to know if anyone had something similar or had an idea what to suggest to my doctor. Because I know I don't have cerebral palsy but my husband has said I LOOK like I walk like I have it and I kinda stand like that. But that's it I just kinda look like it but I don't act like I have it because I don't have any other symptoms. I just wanna know if I should be in a wheel chair get leg braces get physically therapy or what because it's getting harder to walk. If I stand too long my legs swell and hurt later but if I walk too much they swell and my ankles and feet hurt. So it's such a tough balance of standing and walking and sitting because if I sit too long they hurt from not exercisin them....so any idea what this looks like or anyone else experience this or something similar?
