Left Leg symptoms

Brief history is I had a pretty serious injury doing gymnastics several years ago that likely never healed correctly. went to PT back then and after several months regained full motion. however, after seeing a chiropractor in June for increasing neck pain, discovered c1/c2/c6 severe subluxations and after "adjustments" began experiencing weird symptoms. current fear is my left leg. Works normally, no measurable weakness but I feel like I am limping even though im told im not. ocassional cramps in this leg too. it's not numb, full function BUT I was told by a chiro there is a leg length discrepancy and it is shorter than my right. does anyone relate to what im talking about? I likelt have much more involved neck / disc problems but im really afraid of doctors because of hypochondria. (IM terrified these symptoms are actually due to a brain tumor ) please help :( occasionally I feel this way with my left arm too. one of the L vertebrates is out of alignment too but I can't REMEBER which one. All symptoms started the night I went to this chiro ....

    No offense to chiropractors, but you may want to put that on hold since you are in pain.
    Besides chiro X-rays, what other tests have you had done?

    My primary tried working with my pain for about two years before referring me to pain management.
    Best thing for me!

    He did variety of testing, that I previously wasn't even aware of and he was able to find spinal issues and then proper treatment for taking edge off pain.

    I wouldn't even think about doctors possibly thing you're hypochondriac.
    You are in pain and need relief. And you are best advocate for yourself.
    I continued to tell my pain story until I found some relief.

  • I agree with Savage, I would avoid chiropractors (mine made me far, far worse), and start getting a work up by your regular doctor, who hopefully does a good neuro work up.

    Good luck!
