Sounds like a lot of pain. Sounds to me like a spine/neck problem. Jasmine had a neck problem and it would sometimes cause lameness in front left leg. When it really flared up, there was pain all over. What diagnostics did you vet use? (just physical examination or x-rays also) What treatment is the vet suggesting/has prescribed? If it is a spinal problem it need serious treatment. I’d have it diagnosed properly first, then go from there. Might want to consider a specialist.

Depends on the extent and nature of the problem. Acupuncture, cold laser therapy, hydrotherapy can all be quite helpful. Drug therapy is sometimes needed. Of course, that’s not a cure but management. You need to have this diagnosed.
