PLEASE HELP!! My legs ache so bad... what is going on?
Every few weeks, for about a day or so, my legs will ache and ache. It starts in my high thighs and goes down to my feet. It is a dull, constant ache. It hurts so bad and has gotten worse, that it hurts to walk and do stairs. It feels like I spent 12 hours walking uphill dragging a house behind me. Nothing really helps the pain. Sitting, standing, walking, sitting with my legs up... nothing. Sometimes when I sit, my feet will get ice cold but the rest of my legs will feel burning and warm. I can get a little relief, to take the edge off, by taking motrin. What could be causing this? I'm not overweight or very active. I haven't pulled any muscles and it's not like arthritis. I've had this for about 5 years now, but back in the day it was like 1 day a month. Now it's about every week or two for a few days.
Questions: What is this? Should I be worried? Should I see a doctor, or will he just think I am an idiot?
PLEASE HELP! :-)

I am skeptical about RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), b/c my hubsand has RLS and his symptoms are totally different. He has symptoms at night and has to constantly move/wiggle/twich his legs. He has to get up at night sometimes just to walk and/or stretch.
My symptoms are constant. I don't feel "restless," just constatnly in pain with this ache.

Sounds like you might have Restless legs syndrome. RLS is a disorder related to sensation and movement. People with restless legs syndrome have an unpleasant feeling or sensation in their legs. My mom has it . You should see your doctor and get help to manage your symptoms.

It is NOT RLS....I have it and it is exactly as you described. Your Dr can give your husband a very low dose of Valium and when he gets the RLS he just has to take it and in 30 min he will be totally relaxed. Valium is a muscle relaxer.
Your problem sound like a circulatory problem since it travels. I would see a Dr as soon as possible in case you have blood clots forming. They can kill you know??

Absolutely go see your doctor! Do not wait even though this has been going on for a few years.

You could have deep vein thrombosis in your legs. These are blood clots and if they break free they can travel to your lungs and cause a pulmonary embolism, which is a frequently fatal medical emergency.

Blood clots in the legs are entirely treatable and those who eventually experience a pulmonary embolism, heart attack, or stroke from them usually do so because they waited too long, often living with the clots for months.

When I was 23, I was as fit as I could be; I hit the gym 5 days a week; Active all the time. I loved it.

When I was 25, my legs started to ache. They ached so bad, I couldn't even describe it to my husband ~ certified fitness trainer. My workouts continued to be the same with mixing up cardio. It drove me insane.

When I was 26, after giving birth to my daughter, I went down on the floor to change a diaper and I couldn't get up. My backside hurt so bad. I went to the doctor with numerous tests.

Long story short, I have ANKLOSING SPONDYLITIS. It's hereditary, but this past generation isn't talking about it. My mother was diagnosed the same year and she's 30 years older than me.

It's an arthritis. I'm not saying that this is what you have, but I would definitely ask your doctor about it. There is a blood test for some arthritis. A lot of diagnosis are diagnosing "fibromyalgia" first and then as the symptoms progress and there is more evidence, then an arthritic or auto immune will be disclosed.

Heat ~ hot tub, steam room, sauna AND stretch out your hamstrings slowly trying to touch your toes. If you do this 3 days a week, then you can start with your shins one day, your ankles another week, and your feet another week and eventually you'll touch past your toes. Hot tub leg is great to help pull your chest down to your legs.

Also, lie on your back at home and bend one knee back to your face and hold 20 seconds, then do the other leg, and finally both together for 30 seconds.

In the same position, on the floor, you can pull both knees to your chest and gently rock side to side rolling on the backside. This helps stretch out your back and legs. I'm guessing the pain may stem from your sacrioilliac joint, coccyx (tailbone), or sacrum belt.

I would see a doctor who may prescribed a anti-inflammatory to see if it'll hit the pain. It could be Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or a stronger prescription like Celebrex. I've been on Celebrex since it was approved in Canada 2000 and no worries other then water retention.

I hope this information is helpful and informative and not scary. It's better to know than not know and it's easier to treat once you know what course of direction to take.

Good Luck.
