What Does Your Leg Pain Feel Like?

Mine has morphed from a constant ache up and down my whole leg, to a migrating pain that seems like a "pull" or cramp in my calf muscle. Pretty much only in the left leg.

Does your fibro leg pain change? What does it feel like? I have had leg pain since Day 1 and no pain meds seem to touch it.

My calves and hips hurt especially bad. But the worst pain is in my shins. Feels like I am being run through a meat grinder. Lovely, huh!?

Get your vitamin D level checked, and look in to calcium/magnesium supplement for calf cramps!

I'm sitting here reading your post and rubbing my legs they hurt tonite the weather messes with my fibro. We have storm clouds above us right now and my legs hurt like H$%% it feels like I have been lifting heavy stuff all day and I strained my muscles and my knees the joints feel stiff and achy Ive taken my meds and they should feel a little better in a hour or so (lyrica 150mg twice a day) it works for me maybe try it.

Re: What Does Your Leg Pain Feel Like?

My leg and foot pain is the worst part for me most of the time. My legs feel like they are on fire on the inside, and they ache all the time. My feet feel the same and there are times I can't walk. I have like a hot pins and needles feeling in all my extremities. It just plain old SUCKS

Re: What Does Your Leg Pain Feel Like?

Elle, you hit the nail on the head for me as well! My pain is also now in my arms & hands. They burn, throb, tender to the touch and ache. In the last few weeks the fibro pressure points have all began to throb. I also get knots in my legs, back & arms that are agonizing if they get bumped.

Sorry, covered a little more than legs....
