I have always been fit, and a good walker. Recently the top of my left leg has become very painful, and walking very difficult. It clicks and then gives way. The doctor said it was Bursitus and I had a cortizone injection. Now the pain is in the top of both legs, and I find walking difficult. I am very low in mood and very tired, and my legs become restless at night. Could it be fibromyalgia?
