Leg locking?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I havnt been out my house in a year with personal problems. The only movement I do is livingroom and kichen.

But recently when I try to use my legs my thigh muscle goes tight and hurt there and then / today I was swinging my nephew with my legs and my right thigh muscle locked and it was exstreamily painful.

What is it ?

    Apply hot and cold compress to the sore muscles. Your muscles are probably very weak.

    You need to do some exercises every day.  Start very gentle and progress from there. Could you get a cheap second hand exercise bike.  Or just march in place, swinging your arms -maybe to music.  If you have a computer, there’s so much on YouTube.  Lots of exercise for all types.

    I’m sorry you feel unable to leave the house .  Do you have addictions? Are you obese?   With so little information, it’s very difficult to know what to suggest.  Reach out to local social services. perhaps they could offer help.  Good luck.  Keep the faith!

      I'd say I'm not obese but it m not skinny - just chubby

      I got a slip disc on my L5 that is mild , even though the pain isn't mild. But I'm okey with it .

      I'm more worried about my leg if I lay on my side I get this nerve pain  and (the locks at day time )

    Sounds like a cramp.  Exercise important.  And maybe you need some magnesium?

    Many things come to mind especially from inactivity. Stretch if you can especially yoga something thats not too impactful. Check out the anatomy of the thigh, hip and leg muscles so you can be more specific on how and where the pain could be coming from. Also take at least 1000 I.U's of Vitamin D. Lack of the vitamin and B vitamins cause pain to feel worse. Ice and heat both work too. 

    Good luck!
