I am a 53 year old female I have worked


Q: I am a 53 year old female. I have worked about 60 hours a week -- 23 hour shifts in healthcare, much of it on my feet. I am overweight. After we took a forty hour bus trip last July, my legs have gotten bad. My symptoms have included edema, my shins ache, and the muscles on the back of my lower legs feel weak and fatigued. Lately my knees lock and I find my knees click a lot when I walk and freeze into position. I do exercises to try to strengthen them. It does not help and I limp now when I walk.
