    This one is new to me: "Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome". According to the Mayo Clinic website, CECS is "an exercise-induced muscle and nerve condition that causes pain, swelling and sometimes disability in the affected muscles of your legs or arms"

    While this should probably go in a "Missed Diagnosis" section thread, it doesn't really fit any of the existing categories. So I'll put it here.


    In summary, for 2 years, a California high school track star (John Hagerman) had intense pain after every race.
    Eventually, a sports medicine doctor figured it out.
    So, a happy ending for Hagerman after 2 years of frustrating misdiagnoses.

    “It was a visit to Redwood City to see a specialist named Dr. Michael Dillingham to solve the problem. “

    I visited SOAR, in the past. Lots of top notch folks work there!
