    Leg aches or tightness in calf's anyone?

    Does anyone have calf muscles that get so stiff they feel like stone and it's hard to walk?

    Re: Leg aches or tightness in calf's anyone?

    Hi there,

    Not any more, but in the early stages of peri, I used to get feelings in my calves as if I was about to get cramp.[I never did get it, but it drove me mad.
    A tightness as opposed to stiff. I don't get that anymore so I guess that's something to be pleased about.

    Jude

    Yes, I have gotten that at times as well as plenty of other symptoms. But now I am getting these freaky painless muscle twitches all over the place. We can't seem to figure out why they are happening. Do you get those?

    TEdwards83, yes, I get shudders, I call them. It's just the upper part of my body and my arms, comes out of no where. My whole upper body sort of does quick shakes, like when you are cold, it does it 3 separate times then quits, always 3 times, kind of weird, but feels awful, I can't control it, it just happens.

    The tightness in my calves, like someone was tying a rope around them, was the first huge symptom of peri for me, three years ago. At first, my doctor thought it might be Peripheral Artery Disease, but since I didn't have any of the risk factors for that, he eventually realized that it was peri. I was sure I had heart disease, because I couldn't feel the pulse behind my knees, but it was just health anxiety. So, tightness it calves is a very real peri symptom!

    Hi: I just started taking toprol for high blood pressure and all of a sudden, my calves feel like I have run a marathon. It hurts to stand and walk. Do any of you take BP meds?

    I'm going to check the web to see if that is a side effect? If I find anything, I'll let you know. cmpgirl
