Hi everyone and Happy New Year.

I have been experiencing leg and foot problems. The muscles, ligaments, etc of the leg are making it extremely hard to move around. In addition to this I have a lot of foot pain both on top and bottom of the feet. Have any of you ever had anything like this occur with you all. I have had to call my Dr. twice in the last month to get shots for pain and then a prescription for one week. I only see him every 3 months and thankfully my appoint is January 16 and am hoping/praying for a solution to all this discomfort. There is no one to talk to without seeming like a hypochondriac.

I look forward to hearing from someone who has had or is having so its not just me.

I hate this disease.

Twinks, I am too tired to list what is wrong with me.

I get trouble in my feet where it feels like my feet have been stomped on.
My legs get weak and shaky at times.

Yes, I have had random areas of my body get "inflamed" from time to time. Like the week the tops of my feet felt like fire ants were biting them all week. Or the leg muscles that sometimes feel like they have huge knots in them, but I've done nothing to instigate it and no-one else can feel them - they spontaneously disappear as fast as they appear.

I might question the shots for pain -- is hiding the pain just masking some more real problem that needs to be addressed? Like inflammation or some actual muscle/tendon strains?

Definitely put this on the list to chat with your Dr about! Good thing you have an appt soon!

I have problems with my feet and legs all the time. It ranges day to day what problems I have. For the last couple of months I have had what seems like a cramped calf muscle in my left leg. Not really painful just more aggravating like, both ankles feel like I sprained them, some days worse than others, hurts to walk first thing in the morning but straighten out as the day goes on and my legs feel like jello a lot of the times. especially if I stand to long and my thighs always hurt like they are bruised.

I also have problems with my legs and feet alllll the time!!! It feels like my muscles don't want to stretch out or like I've lost muscle tone and they hurt like crazy!!! My ankle joints hurt so very badly along with knees and hip feet need massages almost every night because the pain is intense. I've been getting Lidocain injections in the hips (bursa) and that seems to help for a little while but oh dear Lord if I could get them every other week you bet I would!!
