Let me start off by giving you a bit of history into my leg pain and a list of my symtoms. About one year ago during exercise my legs began getting really tiered prematurely accompanied by tightness and weakness. The pain was/is equal in both legs and does not include any joint pain. Originally, I only noticed this during excercise. After several months I noticed it occuring during normal daily activities. I have always been active, and have been in good health.

I consulted my general doctor who conducted several blood tests. No issues were noted (normal suger levels, oxygen absortion, blood counts, etc.) and I was sent to a nuroligist. The nuroligist then had an MRI done of my lower and mid back, results showed no compression of my nerve bundle. Next we did an EMG, which yielded normal results with the exception of some nerve bundles having a reduced reaction (part using the measurement with needles). This they think could have been caused by a past pinched nerve and are considering a muscle biopsey next to see if anything shows up.

Currently my legs routinely feel stiff, tight, and weak reguardless of excercise or not. I still have no answers and could use any help or suggestions you may have. Also, my legs and feet experience tingleing almost like they feel asleep.

Thanks for reading, I appriciate it and any help you may be able to give me.

Best Regards,
