My friend has severe leg and arm pain on only


Q: My friend has severe leg and arm pain on only the left side. It started as a pain in the IT region of her thigh, slowly spread down, makes her foot feel "heavy" and then the pain spread to her arm. This happened over a month period and seemed to be worsened by excessive walking. Now, even without walking, the pain is unmanageable. Still no pain on the right side. EMGs are normal on both sides, left patellar reflex is absent, CT of her brain is normal, X-rays of her back look normal. Next is an MRI of her brain. What could it be??

Symptoms:  NA
