is it normal to have leg spasms and 'bee sting' pains . I have had cellulitis for about five weeks and am having to have daily changes of dressing because of bad leakage. I'm allergic to penicillin to swab has been taken to find the right medication.

    Hi. I had one bout of cellulitis last year. I was lucky in that my blisters stayed intact so i didnt have the open wounds. I did get admitted to hospital as i was very poorly. Iv antibiotics and off work for a month. In answer to your question i had extreme pain in putting my leg to the floor at the start. As my leg healed i had intense stabbing pains, it took some time before swelling stopped and i felt more normal in myself. A year on i have a dark area at the bottom of my leg. I always sit with it elevated at home. It is sensitive to touch and i recently have had jabbing pains again though no sign of the infection returning. It is a horrible illness to go through and i always take care of my 'LEG ' i hope you get well soon. Be good to yourself and get lots of rest with short bouts of exercise. X
