    Hi Ingrid, I also suffer with painful legs. Apart from oral meds, (I take Pregabalin, and co-codamol and Tramadol if it's really bad,) the other thing I find helpful is a hot bath with magnesium flakes in. Some people find taking oral magnesium supplements helps generally; I found they upset my tum. Or rubbing magnesium oil onto the skin. What have you tried? x

    Hi in grid I also suffer from painful legs and they swell up terribly I have asked many doctors an also asked my pain specialist. I find raising my legs sometimes helps but it can cause pain other time's especially if ur knees are sore. I take my meds pregabblin and ampitriptyline an also 200 my tramadol but I buy paramol as well to ease the pain. I hope this will help you. Kirsty

    HI Ingrid

    Me to like the others, its my legs, does anyone else find when they get up and go to the loo at night when they get back into bed it all starts up again when you lay down?  Im taking magnesium too but only a slight improvment.
