In other news, I started my essay today- have done 600 words. I CAN write, after all! I was completely incapacitated all weekend except for typing idle gossip on here while lying flat! It's easier than thinking about writing an essay on a topic that you've never ever read about anywhere else before
I need to sleep- I'm going to be SO shattered tomorrow
this keeps happening- I don't get to sleep til the middle of the night these days:(

I have this problem all the time. My legs usually start to hurt at night and the pain progresses to the point where it sometimes keeps me up all night--and it's an ache like you describe. My doctors diagnosed me with fibromyalgia, but my new POTS doc says the leg pain at night is just a wierd POTS symptom. I do have fibro. but my doc says this is different...something to do with blood vessels but I can't remember the exact reason.
I've learned that tylenol helps a little sometimes, but usually nothing really helps.
Sorry I can't offer you any more advice, but you're not alone.
Hope you get some sleep,

I can relate to legs pain.. it freakin' stinks!.. the only thing that I have found that takes the egde off of the pain is toradol.. its an anti-inflammatory.. but you cant tkae it for more then 5 days at atime.. as it cause some GI issues i believe.. something w/ the tummy..
other then that...elavating your legs some that helps alittle too..
my pain will typically start in the middle of the night or late evening.. and will last for a few hours or a few days.. dpending on things..
also I have noticed that when it rains or snows.. and is damp outside that my leg pain is worse.. also if I spend to much time on my feet.. triggers it too..
did your scooter get fixed yet? i certainly hope tha they fixed it for you!!!
I hope that you feel better perse..
hugs and sweet dreams
