Hello Everyone, Does anyone out there have any experience with overcoming leg pain? I had almost never had leg pain (one of the few symptoms that I had actually never had!) until I caught influenza 2 months ago and got body aches that seemed to latch on and never fully went away. Since then, I have had on and off leg aches and pain that is sometimes quite debilitating when it is at it's worst. 2.5 months ago I returned to work after being on medical leave for a year and a half (for TMS related issues), so in the past few months I have been far more stationary and have been sitting way more than I had been in a long time. I have been trying to treat my leg pain as TMS and had some decent success with it, although the pain still comes back and is generally worse during times of increased stress. I was feeling pretty good about how I was dealing with it, and then, of course...a few days ago I had a random thought of "the doctor told me at my last visit that I have varicose veins. What if this leg pain is actually from a medical condition and not TMS? What if this pain never goes away because it is actually something legitimate? What if going back to work brought this on from sitting so much more (apparently being stationary and sitting for long periods can make varicose vein pain worse), and it wasn't TMS triggered by the flu?......" And on and on and on the way my brain likes to do. This was all much easier when I attributed this to TMS. Sigh. Does anyone have any experience or insight with varicose veins and/or leg pain? I would love to hear your thoughts, as I they are always so helpful for me. Thank you!
