Pains in Leg muscles

Posted , 2 users are following.

Sorry to put a 3rd problem in

I wake up really early in the morning & both of my leg muscles hurt like hell & Im stiff as anything

Sometimes I have to resort to taking co-codemol so I can get a good nights sleep

Ive had to up the dose of volterol so I can rub some on before i go to bed & I still wake up with them

Ive been buying some deep heat patches to put on them but they stay on for a short while & because theyre only sticky in the centre & not around the edges as they should be -they fall off &Im constantly having to put them back on again as they also decide to fall off when I put trousers on

In the mornings its AGONY & Im stiff all day & it hurts to walk & have to sit down

I know youre only suposed to put a little on because it goes a long way but the only way Im going to get some decent sort of sleep is to put a lot on

      Hi Anthony -

      In what form?

      I also use deep heat patches & put them on my leg muscles & sleep with them on (even though youre not supposed to)

      Hi Anthony

      This is going to sound crazy to you -I dont have a bath to put bathsalts in -I have power shower instead

      Ive had to go back to my normal volterl until I get my march prscription because I used it all within a week

      you can buy magnesium spray . but i found magnesium flakes better then rubbed on with warm face cloth . the flakes last lot longer they are just the same as a spray if dissolved in warm water , hope that helps
