leg pains

AnonymousUserAAnonymousUser Posts: 49,671
I have constant leg pains in both legs. Makes no difference if I stand, sit, walk, etc., they hurt. I have in the past had problems with sciatica, but this is in both legs. I take a homeopathic pain medication for leg cramps and pain, which has quinine in the ingredients. It doesn't help much. I have tried tylenol and aspirin also. I will often get several hours where I am pain free, but then it all comes back. I have been sitting on a hard kitchen chair for about four years - could this be the problem. I sit on the chair to write letters, work jig saw puzzles, and work on my computer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
thank you.


  • Hopefully you have seen a Doc. I have the same situation and it is getting worse. I just finished two epidural steroid injections and can feel my legs more but because I have a pinched nerve, I am still feeling that problem. I will say that the leg pain is much better. My last injection ws tuesday this week. Hard chairs for me are much better then soft chairs. Ths soft chairs can really hurt. Make sure you see a Doc to make sure the leg pain is not related to something else..it could be back or??? Let me know!

  • Usually if you have sciatic pain, even if it is in both legs, you are able to find a little relief in a change of position. Depending on which nerve is being compressed, you might feel better sitting or lying down, but have pain when walking or standing, for example. The fact that your legs hurt in all situations makes me wonder if something else is going on.

    Please see your doctor for a check-up. She/he can direct you to a spinal specialist if it appears your problems are spine related.

    Hope you feel better soon. Why don't you try putting a cushion in your chair to see if it helps, and try to get up every half hour or so and move around a little bit.
