Leg bone pains and chest flutters

Thread starter #1
For the past couple of months, maybe a few days out of the month I’ve been getting these aches in my shins that sometimes extend up and over my knees. It doesn’t hurt to walk, only to rest. Any ideas? Could this be from too much sitting? Sometimes I’m in class for 8 hours at a time with not many breaks to get up and stretch my legs.

Does anyone else get a weird sensation on the left side of their chest like a flutter? Mine feels like a twitch, similar to when my eye twitches. It doesn’t hurt. But it concerns me because of the location.

Thanks for reading!

For the breast thing... Yeah, that happens to me. I think it is just a muscle twitch or something. It is usually on the side of my chests. especially the left one like you, so I think it is pretty normal. Muscle twitches happen. But if it keeps happening it may be caused by tension in the chest muscle area. I always strain my muscles there when I'm anxious about my heart and it even hurt one time. So I think there's that.
The leg thing might be what you suggested, I'm not sure. But I do get the bone pains randomly, although not repeatedly in the same region. Don't think it is anything too serious though. Maybe you could try allowing some more leg movements to see if it helps?
