I have an appt with an Orthopedic friday, but want to know if anyone has any experience with these.
My DD2 is 20 months and started limping out of the blue last weekend. She is VERY active, runs jumps and dances all day long with her big sis (3.5 yrs), so this is quite a change for her. We got x-rays of her leg and foot, no breaks, but they found a non-ossifying bone tumer on her Tibia up top by the knee. She cry's a lot, very sensitive, and still limping 30-50% of the day. Apparently this should not be the reason for her pain or discomfort(says our family MD who I only saw for a 2nd opinion because our ND suggested we do that).
Anyone have any thoughts?
Oh and as a LMP I have a good gage on the body, so this is not a joint issue, no visual signs of injury/inflammation.
Thank you!
