Good morning everyone, I am new here because I have been to numerous doctors and neurologists and have no answers. here are my symptoms

about 4 or 5 years ago i noticed a feeling of leg fatigue in both of my legs. the pain is located througout the calf and the hamstring, sometimes in the thighs. the pain is there 24/7 and nothing i have taken (advil etc) relieves the feeling. a way to describe this pain is they feel very very tight, similar to the feeling after you work out...when i stretch them out, i feel better but only for a few minutes. it does not affect how i walk, and i can run/do cardio workout without trouble but when i finish my first steps feel like i am floating...sometimes when i have been on a elipicatal working out when i try to step forward i lose my step, but this pnly happenes 1 or 2x a workout session. i dont have this feeling in any other body parts, just my legs. Also, i am always feeling tired and worn out. just last night i was falling asleep at 8 30 pm woke up at 6 30am for work and i feel like a zombie. sometimes this is better or worse but i generally never feel "fully charged"

there isnt a certain type of the day when it feels worse or better, it doesnt matter if i am sitting at my desk at work or about to lay down i am constantly in discomfort. there are some days/nights when it is worse than uaual but its never better...ive been dealing with this every day for 4-5 years and all i want is to wake up and not deal with this every year

i have had MRI's and CAT scans and had tests where they stick needles in my legs and thighs with electricty (EMG i think) and countless blood work. everything comes back "normal". i am a 26 year old male in good health--i am slightly overweight and i try to work out 3-4 times a week.i have MS in my family but MRS's supposidly ruled this out and doctors are saying no MS red flags are being waved, which is a good thing but i am back at square 1 with no answers in sight. frustrating!

it is getting to the point where this chronic pain is something i am just going to have to deal with my whole life and am starting to feel hopeless...anyone out there, please help me out!!!

if anyone has any questions, or want furthur information please responnd and i will update
