For the last week I have been having pain in my calves, and feel pain in my lfet hip, so that I do not have full range of motion (I.e, putting on shoes, bringing my left leg up is painful)

I have this burning pain in my calves when I lie down or sitting, but not walking around. It is keeping me up at night. I took Motrin but it only helped for a short time

  • I have the same thing - I am going in to the doctor tomorrow morning to try and find out what the deal is. I went online and see that possibly it could be a sciatica nerve thing. But, I also saw that possibly it could have to do with varicose veins or poor circulation. Better safe than sorry, I'm hoping that the doctor can help give me an idea of what might be wrong. I hope that you find some help.

  • I also have calf and hip pain. I had an MRI last week. I have a herneated disc pressing on a nerve. My calf and foot is numb, but my calf is so painful. I can't sleep either. Maybe you should ask for an MRI. I am getting an epidoral on Thursday. Hope this helped
