Doctor insights on:
Aching Leg Syndrome
Can bening fasciculations syndrome cause constant leg pain sore to touch and I do not have many fasc only pain emg showed only fasc?
Can Piriformis Syndrome be in both legs? Sometimes in 1 leg then subsides then another. Comes on when walking. Legs ache and pain in calves too.
My calves always "ache" some days worse than others. I do not have fibromyalgia or restless leg syndrome. Any ideas?
Varicose veins: Congested veins from constant standing can do this. Wear good support hoses like the sheer energy kind and see if that makes a difference. If not see your md.See 1 more doctor answer

???: Sorry to hear about your pain. Now, what is your question? Please restate.
No: However, leg calf cramps ("charley horses") are very common - everyone has them sometimes, whereas i'm not aware of any BP medicines that cause them. An overly strong diuretic ("fluid pill") could contribute, but they're usually due to overstretch of the muscle as occurs when lying in bed. Supporting the foot, keeping it in a position of flexion (toes towards the nose) will help prevent cramps.
Sciatica: Jolts of pain which affect your entire leg could represent a pinched nerve in your lumbar spine, which can cause shooting pains down the leg (generically termed sciatica). Fortunately, most cases of sciatica will resolve with time and conservative treatment. For now, you could try some NSAIDs (i.e. ibuprofen, Aleve) and avoid any strenuous activity. See a physician if symptoms persist or worsen
Why do i feel the need to always move my leg. My leg is not painful it just aches i have not injured it?
Hi its been 2 weeks im getting pain in my right whole leg i can't lie down for to long my bottock starts aching from both sides what can I do?
You need a checkup: Persistent pain in the leg for more than 2 weeks indicates need for an examination by a docotr and further testing to find the cause of this pain. Most muscular pains settle down in two eeks. You should go see your family doctor. If the pain is severe you should go to an emergncy room of a hospital nearby and seek medic help there. At least they will give you pain medication for pain control soone.
Hospital clinic: Some hospital clinics work on a sliding scale pay system depending on income. Keep in mind you can always pay cash. Persoanlly, I do not have dental insurance and when i go to the dentist i pay cash. You can "shop" around by calling the dermatologist and informing them you don't have insurance and ask what the price will be..Mention your problem. These are options....You get to decide.
Check circulation: Consult a vascular specialist and get circulation evaluated.
Get it checked: 33 year olds don't have sores than don't heal unless something else is wrong. If you were older, skin cancer would be a good bet. Get it looked at.
May be: sciatica or tight muscles? Get checked to know.
Restless legs?: Achy pain @ night is a common compaint . Although the pathophysiology( why it hurts ) is still not completely understood ( and appears to be multifactorial) in my patients prescription medication for 'restless legs' is frequently helpful( non- narcotic). See your pcp for evaluation and possible treatment ( Requip (ropinirole) , among others). Best of luck!
Could be referred : Low back pain with radiation down one side of the leg could be due to a pinched nerve. If you injured your back, strained muscles of the back and hip can irritate a nerve or cause a herniated disc which pinches the nerve. Fortunately this can be resolved non-operatively in most cases. Moist heat, light stretching and over the counter anti-inflammatory medications may help. Persists? See you doctor.
Leg pain: There are multiple reasons for leg pain. This could be simply a muscle cramp or muscle strain. If there's associated swelling then i would be considered for a blood clot. The fact you can't move your leg at times makes it sound like you need to see a doctor further evaluation. Please see your primary doctor for a full history and physical examination.
