Location: Mayfield KY
Area(s) affected: Right tibia
My name is Petra Crutchfield, I live in Mayfield KY. I just found out
(at the tender age of 62) that I have Melorheostosis! I have never
heard of this disease. I am a fairly healthy person, never had a
fracture of leg or arm, however, within the last few years I have had
discomfort in my right ankle after exercise (walking, jogging). Finally
decided to have my ankle x-rayed.
I made an appointment with Dr. Phillip Hunt, who has an excellent
reputation in our area. The X-ray showed a shadow along my right tibia.
I was sent for an x-ray of my lower leg. After the x-ray, I was told of
Wow! What to do? Just live my life and hope it doesn't result in future
disability. Thanks for your attention.
