I am new on the forum but have had the tight cramping and jerky legs with horrendous pain for 9 years doc thinks it is RLS it is now affecting the thigh of left leg i also have very heavy legs the odd thing is that pain eases a little if i have any weight put on it (my little bichon likes to lay on them I cant remember the last time i felt awake fully as this really disturbs sleep. I had my doc look on Monday as i was worried I might gave clot she measured with a tape and said 'no' but prescribed quinine I haven't taken it too nervous of side effects. I had blood test fri as i possibly have RA, although previous test in October came back as neg, my joints are so painful from neck to ankles and everything in between and puffy like there is fluid on joints. I am brain fogged most of the time anxious bordering on paranoia mood swings and burn up to a hot furnace at night im losing my grip cant open bottles anymore without help and feel as if i dont want to go on with all the different pain that is increasing daily i am so stiff if i sit or get up from bed i walk like a robot as nothing will move easily for a few mins stairs are laughable as i cant get down with ease my spine aches i think i need some answers after all the years of pain... I hope the blood results will tell me just what is causing this as i am only 49 yet move slower than my gran did in her 80's when i finally get moving i can walk for miles but go through hell at night because of pain not only muscular but deep within the bone too. Does this sound familiar to anyone does it sound like fibro? My legs also jerk uncontrollably mostly if recline position but sometimes on sitting. The leg pain etc for 9years the joint swelling and pain fast onset for last few months with increasing severity. Sorry this is so long but need some help i don't think my doc has taken it seriously in the past and i need answers i did have a frozen shoulder from April 2011 to october2013 was given injection by a different GP didn't work as physio said was administered in wrong area then it defrosted after one in correct place any answers please
