Not uncommon: In the early months of crawling a kid may develop a transient blend of rolling over/crawling some call spider or crab crawling. As long as their is normal range of motion of arms/legs in the belly up position i don't worry about the bones or joints.After a few weeks they usually shift to more typical crawling movement.Failure to progress further could be evaluated at the 1 yr checkup. ...Read more

Bone pain? Im a 32 yr old female with bone pain. It starts in my feet and if i don't catch it in time with tylenol it crawls up my legs and into my hips. After that im stuck in the fetal position in tears due to the pain. Its a hollow pain then it feels a

I'm : I'm so sorry to hear about your pain. Let me tell you something about doctors: when we can't understand a patient's problem ourselves, we get frustrated, and unfortunately, many of us will find it easier to tell the patient it's in their head rather than admit we don't know. (keep in mind, also, that there are psychosomatic conditions that feel very real to the patient, but there truly are no physical diseases.) some medical problems are harder to diagnose than others, and if you're one of the lucky people who have such a difficult diagnosis, you'll have to go from doctor to doctor before you're going to find someone who will diagnose you correctly and start to feel better. Now before i give you the next piece of advice, let me preface my remark by saying i'm not telling you this pain is in your head. Many patients in chronic pain; real pain from real problems, find it useful to seek the services of a psychiatrist, if only to help them cope with living in pain. My wife suffers from chronic facial pain, and if it weren't for the help she received from her psychiatrist, i'm pretty sure i would have lost her. Also, while you're on your journey to find an answer as to the cause of your pain, you might want to consider acupuncture. There is a very real place for acupuncture in the treatment of pain, and many people find it helps tremendously. I truly hope you find answers soon. Please feel better. ...Read more

Neuropathy, which can be injury to a nerve down to the cellular level can be associated with burning and crawling as well as numbness. A nerve conduction study would be a good way to answer this question of nerve compression vs. Primary neuropathy. ...Read more
