Help! What's going on?

My legs from my knees to my ankles feel really weird ... It's like an uncomfortable pain I've never felt before. I have no swelling... What's going on?!

Re: Help! What's going on?

  • You probably have a leg cramp/Charlie horse. It's a tight, painful, pulling sensation. No swelling.

  • I've had a Charlie horse before.. I can't explain how it feels but it goes from my knees all the way down to my ankles, kind of a dull pain in both legs. It's def not a Charlie horse though, I know what that feels like.

  • More than likely it's a sciatic nerve

    I have the same thing. I call it a Charlie horse because I have no other way to describe it. It almost feels like a pulled muscle? Is it in the back or front of your leg? My pain runs along the back.

  • From my knees down to my toes I'll get a tingly, kinda pin pricking feeling when I'm standing up sometimes. It feels really weird almost as if my legs had gone to sleep, but of course they didn't. I just sit down and put my feet up and it will go away. I don't worry too much about it, I just chalk it up to swelling and reduced circulation. I'll also throw on some knee high compression socks if I'm going to work and know it will be more likely to happen.

    Oops I was wrong! That's sciatica not a cramp!

    I have this.  It is like carpal tunnel but in the legs rather than hands.  Keep your feet elevated as much as possible.

  • I have this same thing happen everytime I take a shower. I have horrible back pain all day/all night so I take long showers and let the hot water hit by back and it seems to help a little but my legs get all tingly every time. It is a very strange feeling.
