I’m 21 and have had T1 for 13 years now. In that time, I’ve noticed that whenever I get tired, stressed or overdo things a bit, my legs get a bit achey. However, a couple of days ago my legs started to feel extremely weak, and within a few hours the pain was more unbearable than any leg pain I’ve ever experienced before. I barely slept on Wednesday night because of it, yet by Thursday morning it had subsided a bit. Unfortunately the same pains started last night, and today although it’s calmed down a lot, I have similar pains in my hands and arms.
I was just wondering if anyone has experienced this or anything similar, as it’s starting to scare me a bit. I’m well aware of neuropathy and restless leg syndrome, but I think a part of me is fighting against accepting that that’s what it could be. I refused to call my GP because I was worried he’d just put me on painkillers and leave it at that, when really I’m more concerned about the cause of the pain than the actual pain itself.
I’d really appreciate any help that anyone could give me. Thank you!!!
