I've told the doctor about it more than once on my twice yearly blood pressure checkups, but all she says is I probably need more exercise. I seriously doubt that is the issue. Sometimes when it happens, it's when I wake up in the morning. Once weight is put on it, the pain will shoot, and I nearly fall down. Have to walk carefully when the pain is there, otherwise the leg will weaken.
The leg was a bit worse this morning than it was yesterday, after the twist from the near tripping. Took about 10 minutes for me wo walk to the mailbox and back. Usually gets better after resting it a day or so, then no more issues until I step wrong, or wake up with it hurting randomly.
