Burning Leg Pain

Hi all,

I've read about restless leg syndrome and opiates (withdrawals) but I have experienced a different sensation.

About 30 minutes before I normally wake up, I feel a burning sensation deep in my lower legs; around my shins. I guess it's muscular but it definitely feels like a Charlie Horse...that burns.

Am wondering if this is possibly nutrition related - like mineral deficiencies?

Have a good Monday/holiday and keep moving forward. Things here are doing really well - slow Norco taper + great wife + 2 little boys = better odds of success. (older boy was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome the other day and I took the news without reaching for the Norco so that's progress I guess).

Re: Burning Leg Pain

How is your taper going? What are you doing. I have that same thing at night before I go to sleep. I thought it was nerve stuff from my back surgery. Maybe it is related to the hydros. Interesting.

Re: Burning Leg Pain

droopy, i have RLS but not often.

the burning sensation is what i get in my legs, sometimes its a creepy crawly feeling but at its worst, it's a burning sensation that makes me want to run out of bed. i get those when i havent taken my daily dose of percs. sometimes i even get them in my arms...strange.
