I get short shooting pains in my legs, behind or slightly on the side of my knee. On the middle of the calf, in front and on the side. Some seem to be on muscle and the front of the calf was on bone. I cannot take any painkilers cos of allergies and do have RA, OA and osteoporosis plus someone once said fibro but not sure. My whole body hurts if massaged or touched, though if I do nto touch my legs they are nto so bad. Trouble is I am also nervous and so my brain plays tricks and I think of blood clots etc at night. Keeps me awake. In the day time I can cope cos I can keep my brain active. Please if you have any of this would you be prepared to share so alleviate at least my nervousness. I believe it is a form of neuropathy.
