See details: Then you should see a neurologist and have the symptoms evaluated. They are not related to ulcerative colitis or the scoliosis.

Neck on up: These are all symptoms consistent with a nerve issue or issues. Since your legs and arms are involved you gotta' think from your neck on up. However, this is more likely a systemic issue. Your symptoms are just the tip the iceberg of something else going on inside. See your internist and start with bloodwork i let them know if you have any head or neck issues including pain.

It depends...: Stress fractures of the patella or the groove in the femur are relatively uncommon. Healing time depends on many factors: severity of the fracture, age of the patient, compliance with rest and immobilization and whether other negative healing factors are present (smoking, diabetes, etc.). Generally speaking, 8-12 weeks would be typical time for healing.

Yes: You describe symptoms of radiculopathy which is when a nerve malfunctions due to some type of pressure on the nerve. You should see your family md for evaluation and they can do an MRI for evaluation. Of course, before surgery, you should try physical therapy and epidural steroid injections if possible.
