Name :     Savannah

Adult:    18 years old 

Location:  Nashville, TN      

Area(s) affected:  Right tibia on lower leg

Personal History:  

Formed when I was 9 and I am still living with it today.  It used to make me limp because it was so painful but over time I have learned to live with the pain. It extends to the outside of my lower right leg. It hurts to the touch and without rhyme or reason it will begin throbbing and aching so bad to where walking is a challenge. I am a college athlete and struggle with pain everyday. I have found that ice and heat donít help but rather Advil or aspirin and compression sleeves help dull the pain.
