    I dealt with extreme pain in my legs for over 10 years now. Mine started really bad after interferon treatments. I ache so bad standing long period of time and weather plays a key in my overall pain level. Electric shocks travel down my body and out my feet causing a jerking sensation and that hurts so bad. After going in for numerous tests I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy. The only real relief I get is by putting a blanket or towel in the dryer on high for several minutes and then wrapping my body in the heat. It is a instant soothing sensation for me. I also take warm baths to ease the aches. I wish I had magic answers to give. You might discuss this with your doctor and perhaps have further testing done. There is medication they prescribe to help with nerve pain.

    I go through periods of getting severe leg cramps. Please tell your doctor and ask about testing for vitamin D levels. Some people get relief if their vitamin D levels are low and extra vitamin D is taken. Also try to stay well hydrated. There may be medications that can help. Your doc will know. ~ Sue, Community Moderator
