      Thank you for replying. This feeling in my legs would be discribed as a tightness in my calfs. It does happen at  rest but stays with me during the day and I have difficult walking.

      I am hoping it is a side effect to the drug because I had a avascular neurcrosis when I was in my 50's. I was lucky to find a clinic and I had magnetic signals going into my hip. It saved me 10 years before I had to have surgery. That disease is 

      deminished blood flow to the bones. After I am completely off these meds. I will have it checked out if I still have this tightness.

    Hey Dolores

    I've not had crap as such but have developed a really bad aching pain in my ankle/shin. I'm constantly tensing my leg muscles which feels like cramp.

    Thanks

      That's what I thought and wanted to get off it. Now that I am off lt, I am on 10mg of Fluoxitine to ease the withdrawal. My whole body aches like I have arthritis. I originally went on Venlafaxine to reduce pain in my neck for nerve pain and stiffness. It worked then I started to get calf pain.

      Maybe I am eating or drinking something that is causing inflammation.

      Sounds like your still going through withdrawal. Asked your gp for some co-codomal or tramadol. You shouldn't have to suffer.

      Thanks
