Muscle aches are awful. Have you tried elevating your legs after gently smoothing in a mixture of some painkilling gel (if you can use it) and some cooling gell it always seems to help me. I find the hot rubs makes it worse. If you enjoy a bath a few handfuls of Epsom salts can really help.

Hopefully the physio will start to help soon it does take some time to take effect though so be patient. Gentle hugs.x

I am so genuinely sorry to read that and I sincerely hope that you can find the answers that you are looking for. I was wondering if you have ever tried a TENS Machine? I can't use one on my legs as I have nerve damage. But it is always worth a try if you have not?

I want to genuinely wish you all the best of luck.

All my hopes and dreams for you
