What can cause bi lateral generalised leg weakness with difficulty to step up without grabbing pain in top of leg . R worse and calf mus hurts ?

Get evaluated.: Please see your doctor about this. Unless you are having other symptoms you haven't mentioned, i wonder if you are having a nerve impingement in your lower spine area. Your doctor will likely perform a neurologic screening exam, and possibly recommend a ct or MRI to rule out spinal stenosis or other nerve impingement problems. You need to be seen about this. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Are you on any medication that increases the chance of clots like procrit, nsaids like Ibuprofen or celebrex (celecoxib)? ...Read more

Having weakness in my legs after walking or standing  long.   Seems to be a burning sensation on my front thighs,  back calfs. What cause?

? Lumbar stenosis: Weakness or pain and neuropathic pain in the legs with walking can be of vascular origin or a result of spinal cord irritation by arthritic changes in the spine. If it is vascular it is called claudication. If spinal it is called neurogenic claudication. In any case you are of an age where a workup is warranted. ...Read more

Ran marathon last wk. Had calf pain/weakness for 3 weeks b4; now worse. Read DVT is often mistaken for calf pain. On birth control. Should I worry?

Ran marathon last wk. Had calf pain/weakness for 3 weeks b4; now worse.  Read DVT is often mistaken for calf pain. On birth control. Should I worry?

Probably not.: I would worry less since you ran a marathon last week! That's awesome! I know MY calves would be sore if I ran that far! I would say most runners will have sore calves after a marathon! BCPs do increase risk of DVT as does smoking, and inactivity (running is very active!). DVTs are usually unilateral, so if both calves are sore, it is probably muscle aches. If calf is hot, swollen, or numb see MD. ...Read more

These symptoms suggest cardiovascular disease with narrowing of arteries supplying the lower extremities and heart, conditions which don't cause symptoms at 17 years of age. Severe obesity could cause symptoms like this without cardiovascular disease. You need to see your physician as soon as possible for a careful evaluation. ...Read more
