    Nerve Issue?

    Hello,
    I have a 13 year old daughter. She is having pain her knees down always(never truly goes away) every so offer the pain goes up to where she is screaming pulling hair out. She describes it as someone is ripping her skin apart or being stabbed. We have tried MRI's, bone scan, ultrasound, tons of blood work. She was unable to complete a EMG test due to pain. So far nothing was been able to easy pain or make her comfortable. Anyone have any idea on what I can do next??

    RE: Nerve Issue?

    Hi, 3 of my 4 kids ( and their dad) had this same type of issue. Have her tested/checked for Osgood Schlatter Disease. It is when the bones grow too fast for the growth plates. Not much can be done, heat, ice, ibuprofen, elevation. She will out grow it thankfully. But it is very painful. I feel for you, nothing worse than your child hurting and not being able to help. Hopefully this helps and it is nothing more serious.
