Hi all :), new to this forum and just looking for an answer or help to my long ongoing problem...i have had leg pain since April 1996..the pain is in both legs,the biggest problem i have is when i sit, the pain is a burning tingling sensation on the backs of my legs the longer i sit the worse it seems and i can get very frustated) as soon as i stand the pain goes almost instantly..also i can only tolerate certain materials on the skin of my legs as the skin is hypersensitive i must add that i have suffered lower back problems since my late teens...but this was mostly what i would call lumbago and would settle down with rest...i have had many tests...seen numerous specialists over the years but im still no better..i am now 40 and suffered every day for the last 12 years...i now work in an office as a supervisor for a train operating company (i once was a train driver but because of this condition i had to leave the driving grade) i normally stand through most of my shift in the office...if anyone could shed some light or has a similar conditon i would be very grateful to hear from you...regards..Kevin.
