"Heaviness" in the legs?

I can't imagine I would be developing more new pains related to the hyst this far out, but....

The last week or so I have been experiencing a major heaviness type of feeling in my legs. Sometimes it feels like I can barely put one foot in front of the other! Weird! The feeling comes at all times: not just the end of shift when I would (& am!) pooped. Actually, it seems to show itself more at the beggining of a shift.

My work keeps me on my feet up to nine hours a day--but I never felt this before & I have been back to work since mid-May.
Maybe this has nothing to do w/the whole recovery thing, but I wondered if anyone has shared this particular new pain?

I seen a commercial about something about heaviness in the legs..I think you should call your DR. If I remember correctly, it's somekind of circulation problem.
Let me know what he says.

Try and do a search on webmd and see if you can come up with something. My brain is in a fog, but, I remember seeing a commercial for a pill to help with that issue.
I wish you the best!

I have never experienced this myself but remember my doctor telling me that if I had pain in my legs like you described that it could either be a circulation problem or it could mean that a blood clot has developed.

Please check this out with your doctor just to be sure that it isn't a blood clot.

Good Luck.
