What would cause my leg muscles to become very heavy (like cement) and have burning stiffness as a result of standing or walking for a short time? :confused: The pain stops when I sit down, but the heaviness takes hours to subside. If I stand for more than 10 minutes, my leg muscles get so heavy that it's hard to walk. I drag my legs because I can't lift them. The are burning stiffness is throughout my legs. So, I can not walk too long, and am becoming disabled.

I also have constant stiffness and soreness at the bottom of my spine between my hips. And it is always worse in the mornings.

This has been going on for five years, and getting progressively worse. The doctor did not know what was wrong. She took blood tests for MET PANEL and CBC and said they were normal. What should I ask the doctor to do? I feel frequently sick and dizzy, also.:( Please help.
