Does anyone get extreme weakness in your legs? It feels like I can barely stand or walk some days or sometimes. It’s really worrying me. This has been going on for years on and off but it’s been really bad lately and I don’t know what’s going on. My doctors are no help.

      I experience this a lot as well! My legs will start feeling weak, then it’ll be like my body has lost signal to my legs, and they refuse to move. If I ignore it and keep pushing, my legs will start spasming almost like I’m having a seizure, only in my legs

      I wear waist high compression tights everyday and it has helped me tremendously

      Yup, quite frequently. Some days it's way worse than others. It has been worse/more frequent for me ever since I caught COVID

      Absolutely! Especially the stairs and uphill. I described it to someone as trying to do the same amount of walking as they were but with a toddler attached to each leg. My muscles don’t get sore, they just don’t want to move.

      I have this pretty often as well I haven’t seemed to find anything that triggers it but I’ll definitely notice if I’m walking up or down the stairs and it’s like my legs are super shaky and wobbly and I have to sit down. I am fairly active as well but this has only been happening to me for about two years and I have a lot of medical issues going on my Drs have said Long Covid and POTS

      Yes. I experience this quite often. My whole body will be heavy like I can't move. You're not alone
