Smile Fibromyalgia Leg Calf Pain

I have had Fibromyalgia for 22 yrs. The last several months I have been experiencing leg calf pain, which is a new symptom for me. I have had cardiovascular tests and they are negative. Has anyone else experienced this as part of Fibromyalgia??

Thank-you!

Re: Fibromyalgia Leg Calf Pain

I've had lots of calf pain. Stretching, massaging with a foam roller or other round object, they help a lot. So do compression stockings.

Re: Fibromyalgia Leg Calf Pain

Oh yes, I get this pain but in my whole left leg..Only when I am laying down. The pain is excruciating. But mine is nerve pain, neurontin helps, if I increase my evening dose by 100mg it gets rid of that pain. The pain I get is not achy like a muscular pain but sharp and unrelenting. I can deal with most types of pain, just breathing and learning to relax, but not with this pain, it literally makes me want to scream..I have had calf cramps before, which for me is more like a severe contraction of the muscles. Painful but eases pretty easily. Good luck honey.
peace

Re: Fibromyalgia Leg Calf Pain

Arnica cream is OTC. It is a naturopathic remedy. You can find it at health stores or online! I really like it.
