I have heard many people on this board talk about this. It happened to me too! My husband rubbed them down with biofreeze even tho it hurt to be touched and I put on those compression socks from the hospital. I couldn't let the blanket touch them because of the pain!!
I tried drinking tonic water (quinine) because that is supposed to ease the pain but it didn't work either. Is it worse in the evening? If they were muscle spasms then I was SORE for days after-not normal for me. I took my regular pain meds along with the Lyrica I had been prescribed. I am not sure exactly when they went away-it was a couple weeks.
I hope you get relief soon!
