Clinical Exam: First, you need to go to see your PCP. They will do a thorough clinical exam, and sort through all of your symptoms. After this, they will take blood work, and do a work up. You may need an EMG/NCV Study (a study of your nerves) There are many things that can cause your symptoms. Sometimes, its as simple as lack of sleep,or dehydration, and you need to replenish the electrolytes in your body.

Second Opinion: It may be worth getting a second and even a third opinion. If you are fairly active and want to continue to be active, get another opinion to see if surgery is even possible. A thorough clinical exam, and possibly X-Ray may be ordered by the new Orthopedist. All the best.

Injury?: If you have cramping and bruising, and pain, you may have injured your leg, or have an overuse injury. The best thing to do is to go to see an Orthopedist first. Make sure that there is nothing injured. A clinical exam is essential. All the best.
