Plaquenil

Not getting… read more

Anyone Else Experience Leg Pain And My Butt Feels Bruised

I've been experiencing leg pain in both legs. It's a weird kind of pain, sort of like when your leg goes go sleep and is waking up, only the stinging and pain is very uncomfortable. Also when I sit down, it feels like my butt is really bruised. This is hard to explain the pain, so if this makes no sense I won't surprised. Lol My buttocks feel like there are knots all around in it and when I sit I feel like I'm sitting on them. It doesn't matter how soft or hard a chair is.. it feels the same… read more
