i'm afraid to google this.... because i know it'll just say that i'm about to die a horrible death or something. *edited*

Posted by   + Show Post

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!

Shin splints? That's how they always start out for me.

Are you on any form of hormonal birth control?

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.

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

it almost sounds like how i feel when i am having a flair up and i have fibro. but it also sounds like a few other things that i know quite well. my suggestion to you is to call your dr and get a referal to a rhumotologist

Try eating a banana. The shooting pains in your legs sounds like what happens when my potassium drops. If you aren't fond of bananas, watermelon or cantaloupe work too. In fact, of the 3, bananas have the lowest amount of potassium.

You probably need more iron.

That's what I meant. Not iron. Lol

Could it be bad circulation or posture?
