Was just wondering if anyone else has this sensation in their lower legs that feels like your legs are going to give out? This just started last week for me. My legs haven't given out (thankfully), but I can't shake the sensation. Its like a tingly, numbness in my upper calves, right below my knees. I have noticed that my legs are weaker and don't seem to be cooperating with my brain.

What can I do about it? Will it get better?

Hi biggest complaint with fibro is the sensations I get in my legs.  They don't often feel like they are going to give out unless I have done something stupid like mow the lawn, but the numbness/tingling sensations drive me crazy and have been coming and going for two years. I was also  dx'd with Restless Leg and the doc says it's all fibro related.  He put me on lexapro and valium(valium at night) so I can sleep...I don't think either have helped that much.  Wish I could be more help, but I understand what you are going through.
fibro, menieres disease, RLS, anxiety disorder, disc compression, scoliosis, spinal stenosis TMJ  Meds: Lexapro and valium
