Leg pain and night time anxiety
« on: May 01, 2014, 10:45:42 AM »
Every now and then I get left leg pain when lying down(have issues with sciatic nerve or my butt muscle tightening). So last night I was having a lot of pain and I think my anxiety was kicking in. I felt very uneasy and my whole body became very weak and loose. Not sure if it was because I was tired or the anxiety kicking in. Yes immediately I thought DVT and I tried to rationalize that it wasn't. When I get on all fours the pain goes away.

DVT pain is intense and unrelenting.  And your leg gets hot to the touch and looks like an eggplant. 

I have a lot of nocturnal leg pain.  I have since I was a very young child.  Icy-Hot helps me a lot - it sort of "covers up" the pain so I can fall asleep, though I may have to reapply it if I don't fall asleep fast enough.  (I recommend not getting the vanishing scent ones, btw - they're lighter scented because they have less of the active ingredient, and it doesn't work as well, IMO.)

Thanks for the reply! yeah during the day it's fine most of the time, it's just at night is when it becomes active.
