Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
I am Dr.Amita and i would be assisting you today.
What exactly would you like to know
It seems that you have gone offline
Considering that you have had these symptoms for a long time and other doctors have not been able to feel the pulse easily it would have been better if doppler test had been done as that would have conclusively established that circulation is present in lower limb arteries
I would also suggest that you see a neurologist to rule out nerve issues if you have not already done so.An EMG NCV study will be helpful in ruling or establishing presence of any nerve disorder as a cause of your symptoms
I understand your frustration as the root cause of your symptoms is not getting diagnosed
Are you on any blood thinners
I do believe that you would have been better served by a doppler.Though vascular surgeons are trained to feel pulse and they do it several times a day and do it more than any other type of doctor but having a a doppler would have put your mind to rest at least. Even if the vascular surgeon feels confident that your arteries are all fine.You should discuss having a doppler with your rheumatologist as even a rheumatologist can order one.
It has been a pleasure assisting you
