Right leg pain, body becomes immobile often, taking treatments, no relief. Permanent cure?

Hello. I am 15/Male and recently, my right leg started to hurt. I told my parents and they said growing pains. Today I woke up and my whole body was immobile. To just stand up, I must use a cane or I will fall and be in even worse pain. I am taking medicine and doing treatments (heat pad, stretching, shock therapy) but it doesn't stop. I can't even move now. Any help?

Hi and thanks for the query,
a proper medical evaluation is very important to know exactly why you are experiencing these symptoms. Have you ever had this before? Any family history of such symptoms? Do you have any fevers or something? These questions are very important to be answered.
Is there any notion of trauma?
X rays, markers of inflammation like the erythrocyte sedimentation rate, a complete blood count in search of a possibly raised white blood cells count are indicators that could be very important in deciding whether the pain is of traumatic, inflammatory, infectious origin and guide a clinical decision of further testing. Consulting your primary care physician for a proper exam is my opinion, for treating what we don't know is really not scientifically justifiable. The cause if known can be treated and complications, if any, averted.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
