Heaviness in legs

My legs get very tired and feel like dead weights when walking.  What can cause this sensation?

I wish I could be more help on that but I'm not.  I'm still trying to learn alot about this frustrating disease.  I do know that my legs get very tired and weak as well.  Don't know why either!!  There are a lot of people on here that know a lot so maybe you will get a good answer soon!!

Sorry, I couldn't help!!

Are you diagnosed with thyroid disease? On meds?

Do you have TSH and free t4 levels you could post with ranges?

I feel that. I also always have purple swollen feet, and if I stand for a short period the purple color spreads up to the top of my thighs. Anyone else?????

I also get heavy feeling legs and at times they hurt on the top like a tooth ache.  I just asttributed the heavy feeling to depression and the hurting to tension.  linda
