it started about 2 weeks ago i had a cramping pain continuously in one leg for which i saw a gp who was concerned about dvt - since then my legs ache and feel very heavy like i have done alot of exercise when i havent and also the nerves in the same leg keeps twitching and feels like they are rippling ??? does any of that make any sense.

Lower back problem maybe?

worth a trip to the gp - it is getting very annoying

Did your GP do anything about concern regarding DVT? It doesn't sound like it BTW (not a medical person but have had a DVT). I would have expected them to follow it up.

Is it evenings/nights? Could well be restless legs if it is.

Sounds like it could be a nerve problem. Have you been back to your GP at all?

its all day btw - i think im gonna have to go back its painful ,the gp measured mylegs to see if one was swollen and also asked if i was a smoker im not or if im on the pill im not and ruled that it was unlikely to be dvt,oh and he also checked that my pulse in my feet was strong.

Are you on Statins cholesterol lowering drugs as despite what GP's try and tell you one of the main side effects is porblems with legs effects the muscles makes your legs feel like lead. My SIL has that problem Dr will not let her come off the statins tells her it is stopping her from having a stroke SIL can hardly walk is pitiful to see her.

would have been worried about a DVT in just the one leg. Does it feel hot? you might be suffering from poor circulation or night cramps.. Doc could try quinine tablets. Good point about statins and some antibiorics can cause achey legs. Have you started a new job where you are stood up more?
