This is the second time this happened witht he legs giving out and it always comes with hip pain and right before my period. anyone else ever get this. very stiff today and shoulders and neck and back hurt.

Wish I had some advice. my daughter is currently in the hospital because of severe pain and spasms. Started a week ago with the symptoms you are having- terrible pain in hip and leg, some weakness and fatigue. It got worse throughout the week then by sunday night, we had to call the ambulance. She has been in the hospital for almost a week now. meds have been changed so many times. Lyrica didn't work. Baclofen didn't either. Now she is on Klonipin, Artane, methadone and a host of others. I wish I knew the answer....I'd be there too. Hang in there though Smile Lisa

No, her legs don't give out. Instead, they go rigid from spasms. Because of the spinal cord damage, she has one leg that is slightly weaker than the other, but that's the extent of it so far. she's only 26 right now. I worry about how it will be though in 10 years. She has a cane and this week in the hospital, the P.T. suggested she should use a walker on the bad days, but she is staunchly refusing (can't blame her) right now.
