constant pain in both legs,knees and spreading to

I fell about 8 months ago landing on my left knee. I waited about 3 months before seeking medical care. All the symptoms were pointing to maybe it had injured the fluid sack, only I was told by a doctor no. Now the pain has spread into both legs, and I cannot elevate them, it causes more severe pain. I have a little relief only when I am on both feet standing. I hurt the most whenever I lay down, and have had to sleep most nights sitting up. Now I am starting to feel pain in my right wrist. Sometimes I cannot feel one of my legs, or numbness in my arm. My skin is tender to touch, and I have been sweating 75% of the nite. I have been tested for Lyme disease, and the test was negative. I am wondering if it could possibly be gout? Can injuring the fluid sack by it getting infected cause all these symptoms and pain to occur? It seems like when I lie down the fluid runs from my lower leg to the back side of my thigh causing severe pain. The only way to get any relief is to prop my upper body higher than my legs, therefore elevating them downward.

It would seem that you have a systemic illness of some sort. You need proper testing and a doc with good clinical acument. There is no substitute for seeing a patient in the office and running the proper tests. Find a good doctor, probably one who practices nutritional medicine. This web site is a good source.
