throbbing legs?
NJB
I am worried that since starting a new pill, diane 35, i have begun to have terribly painful legs, esp. at night, throbbing,  is this due to pill, or the fact i have just moved to a hot country, or veins, coud be one of number of things??  i am fit and exercise often, i have one child, but have never had any thing like this discomfort, does this sound familiar??
i have been on this pill for 4 months now.

I have for some years now sufferred with throbbing leg. Usually from the thigh to below the knee. Over the past 12 months been sufferring from both legs throbbing, more so the right leg. I use the term throbbing and not aching as there is a big difference. I dont stand many hours now although i am a very active person. I usually take ibuprophen which is a pefect remedy. My only concern is my long term use of these painkillers.

I have also noticed of late that if i drink alcohol no matter if it is two glasses of wine or a bottle, the pain developes rapidly and all through the night and next day untill i take some tablets. This pain will not subside unless i take some painkillers.

I personally think my blood is restricted in its flow around my legs as that how it feels, but I feel a bit of a fool going to the doctors moaning about my throbbing legs, can you advise please..

I am 38yrs, two children and a very active person. I dont do sport much anymore but have a very active busy lifestyle.


thanks Sophia Bridge
