A medical work up doesn't always provide a direct answer - it more often tells you what ISN'T going on. It sounds like you don't understand what your MD is thinking. Here's a scientific checklist article. I suggest you print it out and sit down with the treating MD and review your concerns - ask for clarification on your child's tests. Good luck!

My back went out about 4 days ago. And I can't lift my legs up but maybe only a inch off the floor without it hurting my back and have to walk slowly?
Strain: This is most likely an acute lumbosacral strain with muscle spasm. Apply cold for 48 hours and then switch to intermittent, moist applications, liniments like bengay, and, if you can take them, nsaids like Advil or Aleve (naproxen). Your physician can prescribe a muscle relaxant like flexeril and/ or a lumbar brace if necessary. Such cases, if severe, take 7-10 days to resolve. ...Read more
My grandmother can not feel her left leg, she says there is no pain. But she can not lift it or walk on it, she does not know what can be causing this. It has been almost a week since the numbness.?
Felt like something popped in upper thigh so now I can't lift leg or run but can walk. What's that?
You may have strained your hip flexor muscles (psoas/rectus femorus) required for 'lifing your leg or running'
a 'groin pull' is also caused over-stretching of the adductor muscles (which include the adductor magnus, longus, brevis.)
treatment is r.I.C.E : rest, ice, crutches, elevate then slow stetching. See also http://www. Sports-injury-info. Com/hip-flexor-injury. Html. ...Read more

I am on medication 'flupirtine and levipride 50' but since the day I took it, the numbness in my legs is increasing day by day. Now unable to even walk.
Check potassium: Flupirtine is unique among pain killers in that it works by opening potassium channels. It is not marketed in the US so I have no experience using it. Numbness or parasthesias in the legs followed by rapidly progressive paralysis may be due to AIDP (Guillain Barre) so its important that you have a neurological assessment immediately. ...Read more

I went kayaking Saturday and got the most severe sunburn of my life on my legs. It's Wednesday now and STILL almost unable to walk due to pain. Advice?
Not much...: Unfortunately, there's not much you can do. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen or naproxen can help control pain. Potent steroid creams (by prescription) sometimes are tried, but usually are not helpful. If very severe, e, g. if you develop bullae (giant blisters), for sure see a doctor or urgent care clinic ASAP. The good news is that pain should improve very soon. ...Read more

Exercises: I assume you mean you are having difficulty bending your knee? If so, it is very important to slowly start bending the knee and straightening it as tolerated but pushing through any mild to moderate discomfort to increase the range of motion at the knee. Slowly increase how much you stretch the muscles and ligaments/tendons in the knee (and ankle if problematic) over weeks time... ...Read more
