    Default Random tightness in the legs and knees

    Recently I've been having episodes where I'm getting random tightness in the legs and knees. Whether or not I've exercised doesn't seem to make a difference. Anyone know what's causing this?

    Restless Leg Syndrome....?
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    diet? cold weather? stress? change in activities (slipping under the radar if they aren't exercise)?

    just throwing some things out there, I have no idea. It doesn't sound severe, just curious right?

    Yeah, could be all kinds of things. I mysteriously had trouble stretching out my left leg, eventually things got much worse and it became evident that I had a bulging spinal disc pressing on a nerve.

    What, specifically is tight? the muscles? Tendons? stiff joints?

    *shrug* Just stretch them out and massage the tightness out of the area with your thumbs (dig deep..). So long as they don't hurt there's nothing to worry about really. I think.

    I slipped and fell on an icy sidewalk (my shoes didn't have very good tread, and I'm still getting used to walking on snow and ice) on the way to a bar known as the Hawk n Dove last night.

    I must have pulled a tendon or something because I woke up this morning and could barely walk. I had to stretch my leg for like 20 minutes this morning before I could head to the mall to go pick up some cold weather gear...

    Quite possibly. I suspect I have this.

    It's not severe. It's just kind of annoying when it happens. I feel like my legs are losing their flexibility.
