  • You may have a nerve impingement in your Back.... is it both legs or just one? Best to see a doc and get checked out

  • You could have a pinched nerve or low blood sugar.

  • Sounds like a pinch nerve. I get that when I sit in a certain position or bend over in a certain way. If it is really bothersome I would have it checked out.

  • Thats the same thing i get, it only comes once and awhile, and its such a pain in the A$$. I would say to have the dr check ur blood sugar levels, it could play a big part in it.

    I should be tellign myself the same thing.

  • I get that all the time I don't have RA but i do have Fibromyalgia...Just the same I would keep an eye on it and if your really uncomfortable its a simple blood test to tell you if you have it.

  • I Btw know exactly what it feels like that your explaining...kinda like you legs get so tired that there just gonna stop but you body will keep going...You just can't take another step or it might make you start feeling sick or dizzy. I don't think It's a pinched nerve...might be bad blood sugar but if your eating properly that should be fine. There is no explination any doctor has ever been able to give me for it...it happens as apart of my condition and I get to cope...Fibro and RA are not completely far off.
