I have been suffering from muscle discomfort. It is not painful but very uncomftorable. It is in my legs, arms and hands. It is kind of like my body will not relax. Does anyone know what this might be caused from?

Does anyone know what this might be caused from?I don't know if it's the same thing, but I get crazy muscle discomfort - some really wierd indescribable feeling that is only momentarily eased my stretching or tensing the given muscle. I get it in muscles throughout my body from fingers & feet to forearms and back. It leaves me constantly moving to try & find some relief but it's incessant. Blood tests, physio, chiro haven't been able to figure it out as yet... It's driving my crazy. Does this sound anything like what you're experiencing?

  • Do you have hyper mobile syndrome (HM) commonly known as being double jointed, very flexible joints (but you dont have to be hyper mobile in all joints to have HMS)? I have HMS and I hate sitting still as my muscles feel active all the time and in need of a good stretch and move about. They aren't sore either. But I do get pain now around my joints where muslce and tendons join as I am degenerating.agape,searchingsam

  • I have been suffering from muscle discomfort. It is not painful but very uncomftorable. It is in my legs, arms and hands. It is kind of like my body will not relax. Does anyone know what this might be caused from? Yes.. i get that too and it makes me uncomfortable..esp at night. You could have RLS but have it like affecting your whole body. i have a condition which causes it in me..but my arms, hands, feet are all affected like my legs. ". Do I have restless legs syndrome (RLS)? Chances are, if you are reading this answer, it is because you are concerned that you or someone you love may have restless legs syndrome (RLS). How many of the questions below are true for you? • When you sit or lie down, do you have a strong desire to move your legs? • Does your desire to move your legs feel impossible to resist? • Have you ever used the wordsunpleasant, creepycrawly, creeping, itching, pulling, ortugging to describe your symptoms to others? • Does your desire to move often occur when you are resting or sitting still? • Does moving your legs make you feel better? • Do you complain of these symptoms more at night? • Do you keep your bed partner awake with the jerking movements of your legs? • Do your ever have involuntary leg movements while you are awake? • Are you tired or unable to concentrate during the day? • Do any of your family members have similar complaints? • Does a trip to the doctor only reveal that nothing is wrong and there is no physical cause for your discomfort? If you answered "yes" to a majority of these questions, you may have RLS. If you do have RLS, you are not alone! Up to 8% of the U.S. population may have RLS. Many people have a mild form of the disorder, but RLS severely affects the lives of millions of individuals. "

Blood tests, physio, chiro haven't been able to figure it out as yet... It's driving my crazy. Does this sound anything like what you're experiencing?I myself have what you feel, and I was searching for it for a while until I came across this.I have the same feeling but most of the time is under my torso and the left leg.The only thing that relieves the discomfort is either stretching it, hitting it with my hand, or massaging it. I guess this one will not have an answer yet. I haven't seen a doctor yet, but when I do I hope they can see what I have.

Blood tests, physio, chiro haven't been able to figure it out as yet... It's driving my crazy. Does this sound anything like what you're experiencing?I have the same symptoms as you describe. It has been bothering me for around 8 years. The only connections I can come up with that may or may not be a root cause are increased consumption of caffeine and increased responsibility and stress at work. I have this dull discomfort in my thighs and calves and only get temporary relief, like scratching an itch, by stretching, tensing the muscle or massaging the muscle. The sensation has never caused me to wake me at night. I also have a strange sensation to "twitch" my eye brows. All of these movements are completely voluntary for me. I have ruled out RLS and other involuntary muscle movement conditions. I have gone to the doctor about it but they have been no help. Anyone have suggestions? I need to cut out caffeine completely to rule that as a cause or not.
