I have been on vegetarian diet (I,m still eating dairy products and fish) for about 2 months now. Since then I noticed I feel much lighter (which is great) but about 2 weeks ago my legs started to hurt (compared to arthritis pain). I do not associate it with any physical effort as I did workouts before switching to vegetarian diet and had these legs pain episodes every, let's say 3-4 months. Now, it's every day for the last 2 weeks. I wake up and I feel ok, but then around noon my legs start to hurt and by 7 pm I'm almost unable to walk. Could that be associeted with my new diet? What am I doing wrong?
If I understand your question correctly, you had these pains prior to the new diet and now they have increased intensity. It does not seem to be diet related if you had them before. I suggest you see your MD and get checked out.
