Hi Sabrina, It has been proven that there are physical effects such as aches and pains associated with depression but as to what you are describing I don’t know...I would suggest differing to your Primary Care Physician on this one. There can be any number of things causing this feeling for you. One, any medication that you may be taking could be effecting you adversely. Two, you could have a physical problem going on that needs attention. In any case it needs a physician’s attention as soon as possible.

Hi there Ark,
Its great to hear that you are making progress although its a shame that the hospital are no further forward in telling you what is going on. Do you get this feeling all the time or is it only when you go outside? A thought that occurred to me (and I could be MILES off) is maybe there is an anxiety issue going on. It would almost certainly cause the feeling in your legs but would most likely be triggered by a particular event. Perhaps this is something for discussion with the physician. (Just a thought... I have them occasionally!)
I do get anxiety and have for many years. And your right that anxiety can be brought on by fearing certain situations....it's has happen to me before.
I have this problem all the time with walking. My heart (I have heart problems for sometime now) also starts to race or beat faster when i walk to far and I feel like I a going to pass out and a general feeling of feeling ill comes over me. But this feeling isn't anything like anxiety or a panic attack. I have days were I feel totally normal and other days when I am so sick feeling all I want to do is stay laying down because I'm so weak. My body feels as if my body's system is shutting down, just ill felling.
I also run fever at times and the flu symptoms. Sometimes this will last for a whole days to several days. Other times it will last for a few hours and then pass, but still weak once it has passed. Its just so strange and wish they could figure out what the problem is. I also have Hepatitis C, diagnosed in 1998 with early cirrhosis.
Doctors have ran liver panels on me 4 to 6 times a year and my alt & ast have always been elevated. As of 2006 my liver panel test have come back totally normal, no elevation on my alt & ast what so ever. If these test are correct, then how in the heck could I have cirrhosis of the liver?? Baffles me!!!
Oh well, maybe I need to try another doctor. I just want to get on with my life and be able to what what I use to do...........whatever is wrong it has been totally disabiling.
Thanks for your reply,
