Leg Pain

I am getting muscle-y leg pain (not a Charlie horse or bone pain--just like I ran too much) I have not been exercising much--but that doesn't seem to affect it one way or another.  I am now on potassium, magnesium (in my prenatal vit.) and I am getting them less -but still getting them....Did anyone else get these yet and how did you fix them ?

Other than that I feel great!

I get this once in a while.  I have noticed stretching my calf muscles out during the day by leaning into a wall seems to help.

I know your frustration.  I am just about 4 months out and I have lost 58 lbs since surgery (10 lbs before).  People kept telling me that the weight was going to fall off after surgery and I wouldn't be able to keep up with clothes because I will shrink out of them as quickly as I shrunk into them.  But that doesn't seem to be my experience.  I thought it would be quicker than 2 lbs per week, especially this early on.  But I guess I can just keep working at it, and take what I get.  As you said, it is better than nothing.  Just so you know that you aren't alone in this.

I don't know what kind of leg pain you are talking about.  I haven't gotten any calf leg pain or cramps, but I occasionally get a "tightening" or achey feeling in my whole leg that runs right from the thigh to the foot.  It is hard to explain and has only happened a couple of times.  Usually it just resolves on its own.  

I know that potassium is supposed to be good for muscle cramps, and milk is supposed to help too.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
