Fatigue, cramping of thighs
2 Replies
FibroGal - July 6

I get muscle fatigue and cramping in my thighs when I walk upstairs and it take a few minutes to go away. I am not overweight but am badly out of shape.I also have poor balance and muscle weakness (they get shaky after exertion.) I'm trying to ride my bike again but it is hard as that hurts my legs too and Im often too tired to exercise. But doctor says that's what it is. Does anyone else have such symptoms?

hello FibroGal

Yes, everyone is in the same boat as you are just at different times of treatment etc.

Have you tried Vitamin B complex, with iron, read up on it, it can help you, like it is helping me.

B vitamins influence several important bodily functions:

Vitamin B1 (thiamin) and vitamin B2 (riboflavin) help the body produce energy and affect enzymes that influence the muscles, nerves, and heart.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) has a role in energy production in cells and in maintaining the health of the skin, nervous system, and digestive system.
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) influences normal growth and development.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) helps the body break down protein and helps maintain the health of red blood cells, the nervous system, and parts of the immune system.
Vitamin B7 (biotin) helps break down protein and carbohydrates and helps the body make hormones.
Vitamin B9 (folic acid) helps the cells in the body make and maintain DNA and is important in the production of red blood cells.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) plays a role in the body's growth and development. It also has a part in producing blood cells, the functions of the nervous system, and how the body uses folic acid and carbohydrates.
Deficiency of certain B vitamins can cause anemia, tiredness, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, depression, numbness and tingling in the arms and legs, muscle cramps, respiratory infections, hair loss, eczema, poor growth in children, and birth defects in the fetuses of pregnant women.

Yes, I have same symptoms and will try vitamin B as thighs are one of my real pain areas. As well as most of the rest of my body! But thighs ache a lot even just lying in bed & I use a heating pad or massage.
