last night while i was sleeping i kept getting woken up with shooting pains in my ankles.... i didn't think much of it.  It's continued during the day today, sometimes in my shins and knees.  I have not-so-great knees to begin with (injuries) and I haven't been more/ less active than before so I don't think I have shin splints - I have had them before, didn't feel like this.  

Any of you ladies have an idea?  If it was just sore I wouldn't be worried about it, but it's shooting pains... that kind of halt me.  Doesn't feel muscular either.  


ETA:  well this is interesting.  now my lower arms are kind of hurting.  either i've lost my mind and i'm giving myself pains now.... or wait yeah.  i've probably lost my mind.   but still, weird!

Oh, no. You're going to die. Put my name on your life insurance policy?

This is going sound scary, but could that be a blood clot?

If you know anyone with a tens unit, you could try that.  I'm not really sure what it could be from. Do you have any swelling? Been on your feet more than normal? Sleep funny?

You know, I thought of that... but it's been for almost 24 hours.... and both legs.  I know they can happen out of nowhere, but I don't think I have any risk factors for it.

I had sciatica (sp?  I never know) when I was pregnant both times.... it never got this far down my legs... and it was just the right one.  I think that's what I had anyway lol.  It's been a while.  Does it go down that far?  And both at the same time?  I don't have any numbness, just shooting pains.
