Tingling Legs , and achey joints

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi Ladies it's me again. First of all , I didn't get any sleep last night. I can't remember the last time that I got a good night sleep. Well, since magnesium suppose to help with sleep , I took 2 mag..and OMG! My heart went crazy palpitating from the magnesium ..yes the opposite. It finally calmed. But the now my legs are burning sensation and tingling ...and any movement makes my heart palpitates. Im having serious circulation issues too. My body temp has been low, and air hunger. I feel like im losing it..It just won't seem to let up. I seriously think it's time to get some hormones in me or having thyroid issues??

    hi Mary - Yep, had all of that except magnesium always calmed my palpitations down - have you tried magnesium glycinol? i really like your description of menopausal asthma as "air hunger" cuz that is exactly what it feels like - i am so sorry you are going thru this, but i think it is just that, plunging hormones, but best to get your hormones & thyroid checked out -

    I used to have that severely. Two years later its not as bad, but when my feet start tingling and burning, that's when those symptoms surface. Think hormonal surges or dips, I'm not sure. Some days not there, good days, but still lots of bad days. Had a very bad week and then bam, my period came, which was missing for a few cycles.

      I haven't had a period since Nov. and it seem the more missed periods the more the symptoms and worse i feel. I had two good months Nov and Dec.. was able to enjoy the holidays then Jan it all reversed back to these symptoms except seem worse. How many cycles did you miss?

    The longest I've gone without a period has been three months.

    I just have to recognize that when I feel really really bad, then maybe it's coming.

    Two years ago the only time I would feel ok'ish was when I was ovulating, so it must be when hormones are at their lowest when we feel so poorly.

    My heart is doing fine, but I can totally relate to the leg symptoms! Mine have been burning and tingling when I sit down in the morning and evening for about a month now. I had the flu in Jan. and had to stop exercising for awhile, and I don't know if that is part of it. I take 400mg magnesium glycinate at night and have for several years. I worry it is circulatory too, especially since skinny jeans feel really uncomfortable now and I can't even wear any non-loose pants. But if it were circulatory, wouldn't my feet be bothered most? And it really is primarily my legs, which makes me think more muscles and nerves. Also, it's fine when I lie in bed. The only problem is sitting. I think my muscles are tight or something? Anyway, help! (I'm 52 also, as of Jan., and haven't had a period since I think Sept. Wondering if this might finally be the end!)

    All my symptom started when I was 51. Now three years has passed, but my joint pain, tingling, needling are still here. My skin is so sensitive, I can't wear polyester cloth. I feel hopeless! If these all symptoms can go away eventually. If some body had the same symptoms and they disappeared later on, can share with us? Give us some hope! Thanks!
