For a few weeks now i have been having constant leg aches. Its not a sharp pain, just an ache. Similar to how you would feel after exercise. I can no longer swim as it makes me worse.
At the same time i have a stomach ache that has been constant for the same time and i am constantly nauseous?
I am overweight but i always have been so its not a sudden weight gain.

Any ideas?

  • Hi, I am not sure if you are still having the constant leg pain - I have posted here, but as with yours, I have received no replies.The 'constant' is what seems very similar to what I am having, but this has been on and off for almost 2 years now. Very difficult to explain when it occurs, almost like an inflammation of some sort deep inside the femur bones. Is your pain restricted to the whole leg or only thigh or calf area? I had a bladder infection (UTI) 2 yrs back, which brought on this pain, but one would think with the burst appendix I went through in 2006 and all the antibiotics and pain meds, this leg pain would have subsided, but it seems to be even more prominent now than ever. I would be interested to hear your outcome, where your leg pain is situated and if you have seen a specialist regarding the pain.Good Luck.

  • Hi I haven't had the pain for a while but i DID have a UTI a few weeks ago. I never thought it would be connected to it.The pain was in the entire leg and it would ache as soon as i woke up. I did see a doc weeks ago but he reckonned it had just over done it at swimming, (been swimming for a year....don't think i have overdone it)I don't have it at the mo but i am always coming down with something so i won't be surprised if it comes back

  • I had a UTI when i was young (13 yrs old) and i used to constantly get this leg pain. I would know when i have an infection due to my leg pains. I am now 21 and for the past 7 years i have been clear of any UTI'S, However yesterday my leg began hurting and today it hurts when i pee, so i am pretty sure it is back!My doctor said he was not sure how the leg pain and the infection was connected but it definitely is because i could ell my infections in advance through my leg hurting!

  • As someone diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I wonder whether your UTI's are not actually the sensitive bladder experienced by many of us. Personally I find this bladder sensitivity worse than a normal UTI but a supplement called prelief can help (reduces acidity in bladder) and sometimes a antihistimine like Piriton can help, when really bad (drinking fizzy drinks, fruit juices without drinking a certain amount of water makes it worse). Which brings me to the leg pain, obviously those of us with Fibromyalgia have widespread pain and fatigue; I suffer particularly badly with leg pain. I have extreme tender points which run down the side of both legs from hip to below my knee, they are so tender, the slightest knock can reduce me to tears. At the moment I've been suffering intermittent pains in my knees and aching / shooting pains in my quads (front thighs), it happens when I'm resting more than when I'm walking. Walking just makes my legs more tired and when I come to get up after resting, I feel like I'm a 80 yr old arthritic! Anyway, if you are experiencing multiple seemingly unrelated symptoms then look up Fibromyalgia, and see if anything fits.

Does any one know why there is leg pain with a UTI?"Does any one know why there is leg pain with a UTI" = just open any acupuncture atlas picture and watch where's going the bladder and kidneys meridians. I hope you'll understand
