Hello everyone, :) I have trouble with burning pain throughout both legs that happens when I stand or walk. My leg muscles stiffen up also, and they get very heavy. It is hard to walk. I have to sit down all the time to stop the pain. :mad: My first doctor said I had symptoms of spinal stenosis, but the MRI of my lumbar did not show anything. (I have constant soreness/stiffness in my sacroiliac area-but the doctor did not image that area.) I recently read that nerve pain is felt as "burning" pain...so I think maybe that is what is wrong. Does anyone reading this know if my sacral spine or any other area of my spine would cause these symptoms, if nerves were pinched? Or if it could be from something else-like MS or arthritis? Also...why do my leg muscles get SO heavy when I stand or walk? :confused: My legs feel OK when I am sitting down. Any help would be welcome.:rolleyes:
