Had knee pain. Done EMG, MRI. Worried? Treatment needed?

I have been in a year and half battle of trying to figure out what's going on. Started with limping and left hip hurting, then eventually it took me off work. So while off work a year the pain and symptoms have changed places. The more I was off work it seemed as if my body was trying to rest and new pain was starting in different places. I started having burning in left hamstring, and 2 toes on left foot go numb from time to time. Left side of back in the middle it would be really tight then I would stretch and it would help loosen but not enough. I have had 2 EMG, 4 MRI, seen Ortho for knees that are locking to where it's gotta pop before I can walk, tearing noises in knees caused Ortho to send me for MRI. There is so much going on that I can't write everything, I started getting injections in left fascia couple weeks ago. The diagnosis has changed a few times right now it's left hamstring strain and fascia syndrome, maybe you can help, but Friday when I got home from work both my feet went numb and hands also felt like they were swollen but they weren't. I'm a bit scared cause I think about damage and all the meds I don't want to be on. As we speak my hubby is trying to rub a knot out in shoulder. Currently since the weekend I have a spot in the middle of my spine that feels like a hole but my hubby felt it and says its just out of line. Please help this is humiliating and scarey! Thanks desperate
