to often suffer from pain on my left thigh. This would be since approximately 5
years. Well, I thought pain was a result of my weight gain and also due to
inactivity and my sedentary life.
Nevertheless, I did show to some doctors last year and it took me almost 4 months to know that I had Melorheostosis. I went for the usual X-rays and biopsy, multitude of scans before I was diagnosed with this disease. My samples had to be sent to Mumbai, as nobody in Bangalore was sure of this disease. Last year I could feel a kind of hard tissue, an extra growth on my left thigh and that prompted me to go and refer a doctor.
I am referring to an Orthopedic every 6 months. I have been advised to take a painkiller in case of pain.
I am married and have a 10-year old daughter.
At present, I am doing regular activities like going to work, driving and have recently started daily 1 hour walks.
The pain does come mostly when the weather in Bangalore is damp.
