I have had this illness for 20+ years and I began having a lot or problems with this last year. It happens mostly at night and in bed. I begin to roll over and my ankles lock up literally. My feet or foot will be pulled inward (as if I was pigioned toed) and no matter what I do (trying to stand up doesn't help) I have to wait it out. It is very very painful. Also at times my ligament in the front of right leg will do this too. It actaully stands out like a rope and sometimes it pulls my toes upward. OMG does that hurt. Recently it is moving to the hips as well and my calves of my legs. My calves will knot to the point that you can see the knots they are knotted so badly. They are large knots. I am wondering if I lacking something or if this is just one more progression of this dd? If it involves magnesium, my stomach won't tolerate it. Thanks to anyone who replys.
