Customer Question
Awake at 4am with...

Awake at 4am with bone pain in my legs, only been happening for last 6months. I am a relatively healthy 42year old with only minor back problems.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No swelling, i can’t get relief. Even taking pain medication isn’t helping. i thought first it was related to my back problem but it’s affecting both legs

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I did previously have stage 1 cervical cancer 8 years ago but all clear now.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
i am 5ft 9 and weigh 126lbs so I don’t think i have weight issues? I am conscious of it simply because i do have back problems so try not to carry and excess. I am an architect so my job does not enable prolonged standing.
