How old are you? and how long has this been a problem? Have you had standing weight bearing X-rays or MRI's down?
What parts of your legs feel normal, and what parts feel abnormal? when you say upper and lower?
Does your femur feel normal at your hip?
does your femur feel normal at your knee?
does your tibia feel normal at your knee?
does tibia feel normal at your ankle?
how does your foot feel?
here are some of the top places for orthopedics that may help to contact if you havent already:
Any type of replacement is not an option. I'm 32 years old and I plan on being very active for 30 more years, at a bare minimum, and in the near term, plan to be as active as possible, running, jumping, frolicking with total abandon.
Upper and lower legs feel out of alignment, leading to the muscles not functioning properly. Both my quads and calves feel dead in a sense. Like parts of them never contract properly. Feels like my femur needs to rotate inward to be in a normal position, but if I do this my entire lower leg is splayed out to the side and forward. This being the root abnormality is the only thing that explains all of my symptoms.
But surgery should be a last option or a problem that did not originate via an acute injury. If the problem is the result of posture, or consistent stress on the bones, a reversal with overcompensation should fix it.
