Cold (air) on your legs can help a bit, but what really works is a small dose of a pain pill (narcotic) The only non-narcotic pain med that I found to work is Ultram (Tramadol). It is by rx as well. There are some meds that are made just for Restless Leg Syndrome that you may want to talk to your doc about. It's horrible as I suffer from it as well.
So glad you asked this question. I have recently been having this leg pain as well. It happens at night when I lay down - sometimes during day. It's a weird pain with cramps. So I looked it up and it has all the signs of "Restless Leg Syndrome". Except that nowhere on that RLS it says is caused by HepC though I'm "guessing" hep c is what's causing it. Bill made a suggestion about testing for rheumatoid arthritis. When I go to dr. again I will report the RLS feeling.
I thought it could be related to sciatica or restless leg syndrome, but I have never been diagnosed with either?
no numbness or anything on the back of my leg. While the leg is numb, it still gets itcy and it is very irritating to scratch it. If I stand or walk for too long, the burning sensation comes into play, and I have to sit down, because it also hurts my lower back, makes my back feel like it will break if I don't sit down. This has been going on for 23 years! And not one doctor can tell me what is wrong...
I was in a T-bone accident which caused a lot of nerve and mussle damage to my left leg and back about 3 mnths ago. I developed a rash on my leg all around shortly after also still hot to touch. Is this from the nerve damage because I am now getting another rash behind my left arm. It is not painful to touch but I did have abdominal pain, heart racing, headache. My physio therapist thought it may be shingles???
Also, since I have both of these diseases and myofascial pain syndrome I use a TENS Unit and often times I put it on my legs to stop the twitching. Talk to your Doctor about FM/CFIDS, restless leg syndrome and medication. Yes, your legs will become very tired if you have Chronic Fatigue; they'll feel like they belong to an elephant instead of you. Flare ups come and go. Sometimes you will stay in a flare up for years if you don't get help. Med's will help. Good luck.
I have a lot of MS symptoms which I know can be other things. This stuff has been going on for about 3 years with no answers and I am fed up. I’m 2007 I was diagnosed after a sleep clinic with "restless leg syndrome" and told that I never enter into the REM sleep but that they clinic did not know why so that explains why I have "Chronic Fatigue syndrome"....I was diagnosed in 2009 with Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Headaches.... I see the following drs....
I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Good luck with your search for an answer. Wilson's Syndrome has been debunked as charlatinism, and Dr. Wilson no longer practices medicine. http://www.thyroid.org/professionals/publications/statements/99_11_16_wilsons.html Welcome to the forum, and best of luck with whatever course of treatment you take.
I went to diabetes and nutrition counseling (as well as changing my lifestyle with eating and exercise) and they all said they think I have POCS syndrome and so did the GYN. They all suggested that I increase my dose to 1000mg so the Doc did. I have lost 3 lbs in 2 days since and blood glucose levels are done so I am hopeful.
Hormone replacement therapy helps overcome this sensation. If this is predominantly in legs then it can be restless leg syndrome. It is also seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Take up yoga, deep breathing exercise, walking etc to relieve stress. Music and aerobics are also good stress busters. Drink plenty of fluids and water (not caffeine), eat fresh fruits and vegetables and keep yourself busy throughout the day.
depression, anxiety, panic attacks, restless leg syndrome, dizziness, and loss of impulse control meaning I will feel immediately FURIOUS over something as small as not being able to put my contact in the first time. This is NOT like me. Please help me. I can't live like this. Wellbutrin is not working out for me. I don't know a safe way to get off of it and get my life back.
i am 13 weeks pregnannt have extreme anxiety 19 yrs old please lemme kno wat yu think i read up on restless leg syndrome toi..sound like tht ?? p.
Im almost possible it has something to do with my ears and sinuses. I though at first it was chronic fatigue syndrome but I dont know. When I dont feel like **** I feel great.
Now most nights when I wake up with night sweats I can at least get right back to sleep. The leg cramps are gone until I try to taper down the magnesium to 400 or 500 mg. elemental and then they return. So here, at last, is my question: Has anyone else had similar experiences with gabapentin, or know anything about it in relation to magensium deficiencies? So many of the gabapentin side effects are consistent with hypothyroidism, but I can't find any research in that direction.
My mom takes neurontin for burning feet. It's also used for restless leg syndrome and peripheral neuropathy. She's 87 and takes 7 a day so should not hurt you, only help. I was at clinic yesterday and took them my bone scan results. They are arranging a consult with an endocrinologist. I can think of lots of endo-related causes for bone loss: malfunctioning parathyroid would stop the process of rebuilding bone, low estrogen (hello interferon) causes bone loss.
I've never really mentioned it to doctors as it isn't all the time and my family has a history of irritable bowel syndrome (although I don't think I get it) so I'd put it down to that. For me, I wouldn't say it was every time I had sex but then, that may be due to lack of arousal sometimes!!! I do get it pretty much every time I orgasm through masterbation. Also a few times I have woken with the worst cramps and it would have to go and have a bowel movement and it would go after about 20mins.
Even with all of the instances of postpartum thyroiditis, a family history of both grandmothers having graves disease, extreme frontal neck pain, difficulty swallowing, intermittant hoarseness, restless leg syndrome, a thyroid ultrasound that showed many cysts (colloid and mixed) and a heterogenous echotexture a high reverse T3 (not sure I understand it); TSI of 51 (can't find what is normal except by reading that having ANY TSI is abnormal); All other labs are low normal (Free T4, Free T3 and
If only legs are being affected and at night only, then it can also be restless leg syndrome. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
I'm 27 years old and was diagnosed with low estrogen 4 years ago. Well my problem is that I noticed today when having a bath that just inside the entrance to my vagina feels really dry and wrinkly. The best way I can describe it is like a shriveled up prune. This is not normal for me and I was just wondering if anyone could possibly tell me what could cause this. Obviously I fully intend to see my GP practice nurse about this problem.
I did have an issue like this when I was a teenager, had a lot going on back then and had leg and hip pain and had convinced myself then that it was cancer. After all kinds of xrays they found nothing and that is when they figured out it was anxiety related. So I am hoping that it is nothing major, maybe it is a muscle? I am just so worried, I am going to a breast specialist in 2 days and am freaking out. It does seem odd how we all have anxiety issues....
It also could be RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome). I developed it when I hit perimenopause. I don't feel anything when I am in the throws of my day, but let me sit at my desk for a while or on the couch at night watching TV and I get the itchy creepy crawlies that make me jump and itch everywhere. Mine is so bad that I can even get it in my arms and spots across my back. I take Mirapex for it and it has relieved the symptoms completely.
I don't know, of course, but it really doesn't sound like RLS to me since it's going on all day. I, too, have buzzing in both feet. It was just the left, but now it's both. The only time I get relief is if I'm physically active or taking a hot bath. Mine is worse on awakening or any time I try to relax. All my tests are normal. Low estrogen levels might be causing mine, but you seem too young to have low estrogen. Low B-12 could be the problem.
I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
I also found this forum by accident but it may be just waht I am looking for! I have a lot of MS symptoms which I know can be other things. This stuff has been going on for about 3 years with no answers and I am fed up.
Hi Everyone and Welcome, Come on in and make yourself cozy. You can do this!
By the time I saw the neuro, it was gone, but constantly feel the twitching/muscle pain still at the bottom of left foot and in my leg and here and there on my right back, left arm, right arm. Not as much as the left leg though. She then said I should probably get the EMG done since I am basically stressing out way too much. (It was more of a request from me, then her thinking I need it).
And for those who suffer from UARS, this is the primary reason why they’re not getting the deep and restful sleep that they truly need and desperately desire. It’s taken for granted that all humans have rigid, open windpipes that allow air to pass easily from the nose through the lungs. What’s unique about the human upper airway, however, is that due to our unique ability to talk, our voice boxes are much lower down, underneath the tongue, which forces the tongue to rotate backwards.
I havent in over 10 yrs because of the whole CFS, and FMS. oh yeah and restless Leg syndrome lol. and TMJ, plus the alien inside behind my uterus. well talking this out really helps but gotta watch who i talk to because they think that i would actually kill her.. wow. I am not even remotely like that. I do joke about it but what parent doesnt? Oh well to each his own. I do want to say thank you for letting me vent.
