    calves are burning

    I could barely get out of bed & walk the other day because of my calves. I've exercised on/off my entire life so I know what sore calves feel like. BUT I haven't exercised in over a month, so I honestly couldn't understand what I had done because it felt like I had run a marathon or started an exercise program like bootcamp, both leave you with sore calves & thighs. Today marks day 4 of the same pain and I'm stumped to understand the cause. It was this morning that I began to wonder if this is a fibro symptom. Has this happened to anyone else?

    RE: calves are burning

    I should clarify; I was diagnosed with fibro 5 years ago, its just I've never had this symptom. I get restless legs & hot feet but never calves that feel they're on fire.

    I have the same thing, one night it was so bad they tightened up at the same time that it literally made me scream bloody murder. See if you can get a mild muscle relaxer and warm baths with Epson salt, also Salonpas is a huge help!!
