leg issues

A few days ago I started having these feelings in my thighs and at first they felt sore as if I had worked out but I had not. It goes thru waves where its like this really intense tingling pain to the point where I can't stand it but then it calms down but never completely goes away and today it went all the way down to my ankle. any ideas?

  • I would go to a doctor,make sure it is not serious. My patient started like that and he now has MS mulltiple scolosis.

  • I agree with Anonymous. I suffer from Restless Leg SYndrome and it is MISERABLE. One thing that helps is eating more potassium and taking potassium supplements.

  • yeah i need to go but i hate it there at that office, it's a state clinic and you wait up to 3 hours sometimes before you're even called to teh back. was hoping i wouldn't have to see a doc till my other insurance kicks in but i guess not!
