Fibroromyalgia and leg pain

I have been having muscle issues for some time and was diagnosed with fibro two weeks ago. I have been having issues with my legs and wonder if it's from the fibro or not. They feel really tight and hurt. Does anyone know if that may be from the Fibro? I'm on Gabapentin (due to leg movement during sleep) and it could be from that too, but I am being weaned off of it and my legs still bother me. I've been trying to exercise but it hurts my legs to do many leg exercises. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Fibroromyalgia and leg pain

My legs are one of my most bothersome areas. For me it's usually my thighs. I would suggest trying to continue doing as much exercise as you can, but don't overdo it because that makes symptoms worse. Walking or water-based exercise is usually the best thing to start with if you can do it. I hope you find some relief.

Re: Fibroromyalgia and leg pain

My legs hurt like hell sometimes, my lower legs..Not as bad since upping my gabapentin dose. Before they were so bad I would be in tears..Definitely fibro related...good luck
peace and love

Re: Fibroromyalgia and leg pain

I believe Restless Leg Syndrome will make it worst.... Have you even had leg injurys? I injured my back yrs ago but the Fibro is what makes it more painful... But then, I've broken/shattered my wrist & also have bad knees but the Fibro doesn't effect them...
