I’m not sure if neuropathy is what I have
I have been to several doctors and tested for different things, but a clear diagnosis hasn’t been given. It points to neuropathy, but I don’t have the same issues as others have. I have sensation/ dull pain, something along that line from my knees to my feet. Other times it can go higher. Not sure if neuropathy is what I have. Any others in or were in the same boat?
Hello @kurtspoelman, welcome to Connect. I have small fiber peripheral neuropathy in both of my feet and lower legs but I only have numbness and no pain.
I have no medical training or background but there are a lot of different conditions that may be the cause of the dull pain in your legs. Mayo Clinic has a list of possible causes of leg pain on their website here: https://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/leg-pain/basics/causes/sym-20050784
The Mayo Clinic symptom checker may help you identify possible causes.
You mentioned having seen several doctors. Have you seen a neurologist?

I am even thinking you could have leg weakness, that can cause pain. My legs were out of shape, and with PT, pain went away. Leg/muscle strengthening may help????? Lori Renee
I am an avid athlete and don't believe my legs are out of shape. And lift weights 3 times a week. I thank you for your interest
