my thigh and calf muscles ache so much...it's terrible. I can walk fine, and do what I need to do during the day, but they tend to ache. Sometimes it goes away for a while, and then comes back. When it does come back, it can ache so badly that it hurts to walk up my front steps....the ohter night I was laying in bed, and my thigh muscles were aching so much, that I just couldn't sleep. I sometimes use my heating pad and lay it on my thighs..it did help somewhat. But, this is ridiculous, tonight when I was driving it started aching again! I wonder if it's my car...my seat sort of slants back,,,like a bucket seat...and I think that may be bothering my legs...I'm only 47, I am a little overweight, but not all that much, certainly not enough to bring on such insane aching. I don't work outside the home, so I have the opportunity to sit down at home when this happens....I do drive a lot though.
If anyone has any kind of information on this problem, please let me know. I also do the cleansing drink once every morning as well (for the liver).....
I used to wake up during the night and was awake then the rest of the night. My legs, hips were hurting so much.My doctor put me on an anti-depressant and that helped. I started liverflushing because I had gallbladder problems and after a few months the pain went away and I don't use the medication anymore. I also follow Ask Andres Moritz forum. I have his book Timeless Secrets for Health and Rejuvenation and check there what food to eat etc. http://www.ener-chi.com
make a point several times in day to sit with feet raised.
when you sleep at night, put a pillow under feet.
if you sit for long times, with feet dowm, get up as much as you can,
thru the day to keep blood from stagnating and fluid (edema congestion)
this is esp important since it has been proven that folks that sit with feet
down for long periods raise risk lvl of blood pooling and clotting,
that may lead to a blood clot then getting stuck some where resulting in
when I am at my computer,
I sit with another chair in front of me that i put my feet up on.
yes bucket seats are terrible for good fluid circulation .
see if a small round pillow in the *dip butt area* helps you sit properly .
try to use maybe a light support sock when you have to go out,
that will help support veins and I think that will help you greatly.
something along these lines might help you greatly .
(maybe just keep 2 for going out)
they are 80 % cotton which is better than most support socks
and cheaper price than many support socks outlets.
I would also suggest a kidney flush perhaps,
since alot of edemas are related to kidneys not flushing out fluids properly .
drink only 8 oz of water at a time, (kidneys can only process 8 oz of water
at a time )
drink room temperature drinks,
or dechill with adding room temp water to a cold drink .
cold drinks are very hard on kidneys.
stay hyrdrated properly neither under or over/
the amt is approx 1/2 or body wt in fluid ounces.
say a half gallon of water at 64 ounces would be suitable for a person
of 128 wt. (see)
then have a few good herbal teas etc here and there also ok ,
or a few fruit drinks.
avoid dehydrating drinks such as coffee/sodas/
and make sure you are not using table salt .
it hinders kidney process and unprocessed amt is stored as a toxin in
if you over hydrate or drink more than 8 oz at one time,
then the kidneys store that as well.
if you under hydrate
then your body assumes you are in lack of water,
and begins to retain ..
natural Sea Salt in very small amts will help kidneys,
and excess can be flushed out.
we really only need a small amt of salt,
unless seriously sweating or losing mass water
thru some form of temporary flushing.
