Hello everyone, I am fairly new to all this CFS stuff (was diagnosed in September, although have been suffering with symptoms for years). I have a question. Does anyone feel pain and stiffness in their legs. I can go for a few days and my legs are ok and I'm able to walk alot and have a normal life, that is when my other cfs symptoms aren't bothering me, which seems to be VERY OFTEN. Oh, my list of symptoms goes on and on. But right now I'll focus on the leg pain. I've had it for maybe 3-4 months now. It comes and goes. It doesn't throb or hurt when I'm resting. My legs hurt when I get up and walk. If I stand or walk for more than 5 minutes, my legs start hurting (right behind the knee area) and my legs get very very stiff. I walk funny and look like I have wooden legs. I get embarrassed when I'm in public or in front of my family because I want to fake it and try to walk normally so no one will notice something is wrong with me or worry about me. But it's so hard. They sometimes get tingly, stiff, and painful. And if I sit a certain way for too long and then get up and stretch out my legs, they hurt for a few seconds. I've seen a cardiologist, neurologist, and other doctors for this and for other symptoms. But everything is OK. I wonder if anyone out there experiences pain and stiffness in their legs as well. Oh and I usually get more stiffness and pain on my right leg. At least I know I have no cardiovascular or neurological problems. It must be fibromytalgia/CFS. Please give me your input. Thanks!!!!
