Cramping pain in leg for four weeks.
« on: December 28, 2013, 06:09:06 AM »
Hey

I've recently taken up a musical instrument that requires me to stand up while playing and almost a month ago I over did the practice and my leg hurt the next day.

Well I don't know if I've been walking strangely or what, but it's been literally four weeks and my leg still hurts a LOT. Like its cramping up.

It feels a bit better if I move around. But then when it's cooled down again it seems to hurt even more.

Paracetamol helps for a while, as does Deep heat which seems to loosen up the muscles a bit.

Of course I'm still getting overt set back of a couple of days ago about my fear of ms.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how a pain like this in my leg could continue for four solid weeks?? It hurts quite a lot... :(

Edit: I forgot to say. It's from just underneath my butt on my left leg, all the way down to the knee. All on the back of my leg.  the front is fine

It's also way worse when I lay down to go to bed and try to relax it.

Like 10x worse pain wise. :(

Sounds like strain to me. Do you normally not stand for a long time? I am almost always sitting or laying down and when I stand for extended periods, my leg, or lower back, can hurt badly. Contrary to popular belief, laying down when in pain doesn't always help. I would see a doctor if I were you just to rule out anything else, but honestly I would stay off your feet for a while until this clears up. It could also be a mineral deficiency, try taking a high-dose multivitamin for a couple of days and see if it clears up. I don't think it is serious. Take care. =)

Thanks for the reply.

I do stand up a bit. But this time I did not have my posture right and was standing on one locked leg for about 5-6 hours over the two days to get me close enough to view my music stand. As I said... I'm pretty new to learning an instrument so I didn't know there was a 'right' way to stand...

I just woke up and it is still pretty bad. It's been WEEKS. How long could it possibly take to get better?

It's so annoying. :(

It sort of seems to be getting worse rather than better...

Could this be the sore muscles that MS patients get?

It's been weeks now with no improvement...

I have no idea what else to try...

I've tried

Deep heat
Hot bath
Paracetamol
I started taking magnesium today

It's affecting how I walk. I'm sort of hunched over like an old lady with a bad back because I can't straighten my left leg without quite bad pain.

It's ok if I'm sitting or curled up on my side.

Help? :(

Hey guys

Really sorry to nag about this but I'm not sure what to do.

How long should I give it on he magnesium before I have to go and see a doctor?  I go back to work in two days and I'm not sure how I'm going to go with my leg this sore :(

It seems to be worse than it was a couple of weeks ago...
