    I have a new symptom...I went to the MN state fair on Sept. 2 this year and the next day, I woke up with leg pain. It is the part above the knees, outer. It hurts to move or go up/down stairs and it is hard to bend down, so I am just a bit confused.

    Then it was feeling better and it came back yesterday (Sept. 18).

    Does anyone have tips/suggestions?

    Hi Beckula,

    I have LEG pain and lately it has been worse. It does get better at times also. I have been getting spasms in my calves and both knees hurt so much, it is hard to stand.

    I find, wrapping ice around the hurting part, helps a lot. I do Kripalu yoga and I think when I was NOT doing it, my aches and pains were more prevalent. Stretching the legs, doing leg lifts, and caring for them seem to help me.

    Try some gentle stretches to help your legs.

    Feel better.

    thanks for replying...I just thought that the disease supposedly does not progress, although I always felt otherwise.

    I have NEVER felt leg pain like this until the beginning of September and it was worrying me.
