I haven't done anything to strain them, but the muscles in my thighs are just burning. I can't get comfortable enough to go to sleep and I'm tired. I feel like I have to keep walking around or at least keep bouncing my legs because as soon as I stop moving them the burning comes back. Its driving me nuts. It is definitely lactic acid build up, it has to be, but I don't know what caused it.

Did you do a lot of walking or running today?

I just walked across the street to the store and back. Less than half a mile.

I don't think I have herpes I think the HIV killed it.

I've been bouncing my legs for about 45 minutes and the pain has receded. I know its going to come right back, but I'm going to try getting to sleep before that happens.

Having never used them before, a half mile is an awful lot for your first time walking.

Look, I couldn't find my hammer and it seemed like a good idea at the time...

I would recommend amputation, just to be safe... for both the sore legs, and the headache.

Sounds like my wife's problem. She's never figured out what it is.

How old are you? How is your weight?

You could try regular exercise to increase circulation.

drink water. it could be dehydration as well, my legs often hurt when im dehydrated. If not, walk for about 20-30 minutes and see if that helps them.
