Have back pain and tight pulling in legs. MRI is normal. Suggestions?

I have been having lower back pain and a tight pulling feeling in my mid section & legs. I go to bed at night and feel pretty good only to wake up in 2 hours and have to walk around like to get the circulation going in my legs, they hurt and have a tight muscle pulling feeling, every 2 hours all thru the night I go thru this. I have had a MRI of my back and abdomin and nothing showed up.

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
When you in sleep blood circulation stops ( in few persons) and you have to get up .
Once you walk circulation starts and you feel that blood is gushing in legs.
M R I will not show any finding in such type of condition.
You didn't mention the age and gender as these are very important for diagnosis.
Get in blood for sugar, lipid profile, serum creatinine levels.
In my opinion consult a physician and get his opinion.
2nd reason may be degeneration in vertebrae ( lumber & sacrum).
If you are a female than consult a gynaecologist and get opinion for hormone imbalance, as P I D is an important factor.
Anyhow , your disease is curable.
Good luck.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

The most common causes of muscle pains are OVERUSE, STRESS, TENSION or MINOR INJURIES. This type of muscle pain is more often localized affecting one or more muscle groups or parts of the body.

Muscle pain that occurs during an activity indicates a pulled or strained muscle.

The general treatment guidelines are -

* Rest - Take a break from your normal activities.
* Ice -Place an ice pack or bag on the sore area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day.
* Compression -Use a compression bandage to reduce swelling.
* Elevation -Elevate your foot to help reduce swelling.
* Medicines - Judicious use of analgesics & muscle relaxants

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
