    Its funny you came up with this symptom. I also had the same pain yesterday,I am in the middle of major flare with many symptoms.But I too had the calf pain and my primary sent me for an ultrasound to r/o blood clot. And it was negative and today it is gone but somewhere else. Please check with your primary first.Good luck.

    I too get this at times. So bad I don't want to walk or do anything. I usually get it when I am in a flare. This everything else will begin to ache really bad too. I also have a lot of pain behind my knee when I get this, but only my right knee??

    My doc sent me for all kinds of tests too. Pressure tests etc on my legs again make sure was not a clot. All came back fine no clots? I did show less blood pressure once past my ankle though. Thought prob from Neuropathy though. Good luck just make sure to tell your doctor about it.

    Hi Sabrina Sorry to hear that. My feet and lower legs sometimes feel like their broken, especially when I get up in the morning or after a rest. Especially the shins and top of my feet hurt like hell. No idea what to do about this yet but still thought I share this with you. All the best x
