I have been getting these really weird leg spasms. Some days are worse than others....but it seems to be worse when I am lying down. I feel so much anxiety in my legs and all these little twitchy movements that wont let me go to sleep. I have also had a lot of toruble breathing. It has been going on for like 2 weeks now and I can't shake it. I went to the doctor to get some blood work done. Any ideas of what could be causing this? I just want to get some sleep!

  • It sounds like Restless Legs which is quite a common night time syndrome. However it can be a symptom of something else and because you are having breathing problems as well I would see your Dr and perhaps a neurologist.

  • Hi. I'm a 42 yr female and I been having some weird sensations in just one leg....my right one. every once in awhile, I have this hot feeling like something hot running down my leg. it is always in the same spot....on the outside. sometimes it hurts behind my knee. This now happens every few minutes. also sometimes it feels like something crawling on my leg....and my whole leg swells....from my hip to my toes. about a week now, I have had this terrible peircing pain in my hip that comes and goes. it usually hurts if i twist a certain way...and bending my leg certain ways is impossible. I also have that hot flush run down from my hip to my knee now sometimes. Dont know if this might be the problem, but several years ago, I broke my tailbone and missed up my hip allignment....had to go to chiropractor for long time. Could this be from that? or bursitis? sciatic (misspelled) nerve? arthritis? blockage? why type of doctor should I see? I dont like going cause most will say it's nothing....and to lose weight. :p seems if that is the problem, both legs would suffer. maybe a cortisone shot would help? has helped in past with bursitis in knee...and the arthritis. would appreciate any imput.
