Uncomfortable achy pains in my leg causing me to panic!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Since yesterday, I have had awful, uncomfortable pain in my right leg from my calf to behind my knee, to my thigh(all over) and then to my hip. I have had this pain before about a couple of months ago and it went away after a few days. It's so sore, I think the worst (blood clots) and panic which makes me sweat, nauseous, pins and needles and dizzy!! 

Has anyone ever experienced this??

      i experience restless legs as an uncomfortable inanity to keep my legs still. it isn't painful per se, but it is uncomfortable. i get a painful ache sometimes too, but find that taking magnesium helps with it all. my supplement is called magnesiocard (i live in europe) and is a prescription. you pour the powder into watet and drink it. maybe worth checking out? many people are magnesium deficient, so ask your doc. probably can't hurt!

    I have been experiencing leg pain for nearly a year now. That would be the cortisol that your body releases when your stressed out. I would talk to your parents or if your older take some ibuprofen. Once you relax the pain should go away. Good luck!

      I am advised not to take ibuprofen directly due to stomach issues I've ended up with through stress. I tried some gel and paracetamol. Not working at all. It's very uncomfortable. In read up on restless leg and sounds familiar but doesn't stop me from thinking the worst. Just feel like my right hand side of my body is always sore in some way and today and yesterday my leg and hip has been where the pain is today.

      Take a belt and lay on your back on the ground. Take the belt and hold it on the bottom of your foot and raise your leg in the air. When it feels tense don't go any farther. This relaxes me alot. Hold it for about 10-15 seconds.

      It could also be sciatica. Or like me perhaps you have a Baker Cyst behind the knee. Try putting your heel up onto a high chair and then bending your torso towards the knee. This will stretch the leg and alleviate the pain. I think its sciatica though and yes, doctor right to take you away from ibuprofen. Try Ponstan (mefanacide in other words). Its a coated tablet so quite safe for your tummy.

    It's in your head jac,the more you focus on it the worse it will feel.I used to pace the house because I hated the cramping sensation. I no longer suffer from anxiety,so when I occasionally get leg cramps,I ignore them and they're gone before I know it.

    Working out gives you a reason to feel sore so I work out to give myself reason not to be anxious.
