    After having a baby in 2000 I started to have pains in my legs. Just wondering if anyone else suffers like me. I get grabbing pains in my calfs, stabbing pains in the side of my knees also burning sensation. It would be nice to know I'm not on my own with this.

    This is one of my biggest complaints when I have a flare up of symptoms. My legs burn, ache, have stabbing pain and are so weak sometimes I end up dragging one along or shuffle. Last yr. my dr. tested me for MS because of this but fortunately it was neg. I use a heating pad which seems to help a bit w/pain. If you have any other ideas that work for you Id love to know. Good luck

    a rice sock. I put rice in a big sock and heat it up in the microwave. That really helped. Also bengay or icy hot that helpd me too. I stunk but my legs felt better lol.

    I am so sorry this hurts so much. Sending hugs to you.
    I also ate a banana a day.

    Yes,
    I have leg pains. I don't get grabbing pains, but I get muscle cramps and soreness, also burning pain at times. It happens to me when I eat sugar or other bad foods, or if I overdo.
    My electric blanket helps a lot with this. So does diet.

    I have fms and neuropathy. Also severe osteoarthritis.

    The backs of my calves cramp so bad I could scream.

    I have a lot of swelling in my feet and ankles, and

    also a bunch of bone spurs in my left foot and ankle.

    I never take a step without pain and muscle spasms.

    I take..Klonapin, Effexor xr, celebrex, Imitrex,

    Tiazac, Lopressor, Lasix, Ambien, and Zanaflex.

    I also take Vicodin, calcium, magnesium, 1 aspirin daily.

    I also have pain over the rest of my body that is

    is so bad that I feel like I'M going to lose my

    mind. This is with me taking aii these drugs.

    I would be a mess if I could not get them.

    The pain never stops. I go to sleep in pain

    and I wake up in pain.

    It sounds you might possiblely have some neurothapy

    in your legs. A neurologist can check this out.


    Shure hope you get this pain seen about.

    Get well soon and God Bless. (((cathugs))) Ruth
