When a list of symptoms contains ''rapid weight loss' and ''losing weight with out trying' lost 2lbs in 2 weeks not tryin. When is cause for concern?

But weight loss that starts to become visible and ongoing when eating and exercise habits have not changed would be something to be concerned about. 2 pounds in a week doesn't rise to that level--yet! if you have other concerns, see your md. ...Read more

When losing weight (dieting) is it normal to have pain in legs? If so what causes this?

Not directly linked: There are lots of reasons for leg pains: none i can think of from standard dieting. If you are exercising ( and you should be) that will make your legs sore.

Persist and if does not respond go see a doctor. ...Read more
