I have been saying that I am having "leg problems" for a while now. Back in March, I got a charlie horse in my right calf that didn't go away for a week. The pain got so bad, I finally had to see a doctor. He ruled out blood clot and gave me some muscle relaxors that helped. But shortly there after the pain appeared in my left calf, just not as bad. And on occasion int would show up in my thighs. It kind of moved around. The doctor ran a million tests. He ruled out diabetes and PAD (basically ruled out poor circulation). Then it finally went away. But just a few short weeks later it has retured. The pain lasted almost a week and then yesterday went away. But what I was left with was a odd sensation, almost like a numbness and some swelling. Advil seems to have it mostly under control. I have become very good about taking my vitamins (including potassium) and been drinking my water.
Why bore you with my symptoms?? I have been wondering if this could just all be due to my weight and nothing else? So since many of you are in the same boat, I was wondering if anyone else suffers from some ofthe same symptoms?
