I have only been diagnosed Just over a week ago and looking for some advice. I broke my foot about four years ago. I stood up, and shattered the metatarsal,bone into 6 bits. I didnt go over on it, or slip, just stood up. Took ages to heal (pardon the pun), in the past few days I've been getting intermitant bursts of pain where the break was. I'll be fine, then get sudden stabbing pain in my foot. Lasts a couple of seconds then gently throbs. Today I've had trouble with my other leg, just feels weak and wobbly, like it's run a marathon and it's exhausted. I'm concerned that this is progressing rapidly and it's gonna get worse. My gp is on holiday, hes the only one at the practice who has any knowledge of the syndrome. Waste of time talking to the other docs.
Is this a common thing? Old injuries hurting and wobbly limbs. What can I do to make them stronger?
