I have no idea whats wrong with my legs. They feel heavy I find it difficult to walk and they tingle from my thighs to my toes. In the middle of last night I had this leg cramp. I went to the doctor and took blood test and I am waiting for a word.  Its driving me crazy! its been over a week now, I am just so worried my legs never felt like this before.  What do you guys think?

Hi Canadiangurl and welcome. It is so hard to knwo what might be going on with your legs. I really hope the blood tests can give you some answers and show what the problem might be. I knwo that waiting and not knowing is very hard. Do you have any other symptoms or have you already been diagnosed with cfs?

I'm sorry I can't help more. Let me know what you find out from the doc and then maybe that might provide some more clues as to what might be going on. Take care

Hi and thank you for answering my board :) the doctors office did call me yesturday (friday) at home..but I was at work, I dont understand why she didnt call me at work so now I had to wait until Monday to find out whats wrong. It hard for me to walk...so now I am debating
if I should go to the movies or not (knowing how hard it is going to be for me to walk) So obviously the tests did show something ...why would they be calling? now I have to wait 'til Monday. its driving me crazy!

Waiting is so hard - I don't think docs know sometimes how much we feel our lives are on hold while we are waiting to hear results. I would just take it easy this weekend and not put too much stress on your legs. Let me know what you find out Monday.

I agree that waiting sucks. Test should be available immediately (in my perfect world, it would be)
or atleast email you the results, that would be cool too..

Did the doctor give you any meds for this? Klonipin works really good for leg pain as far as achiness for me. You didn't really list what type of pain you are having.

Let us know what the tell you...

NOTE: Also whenever I get bad bladder infections even though no noticable difference with burning since I get it all the time, I will get severe leg cramps and that's usually when I know it's time to call the dr...
