Question

Burning legs

I recently came back from an Europian tour, and have noticed that my calves are burning, especially when I lay in bed at night and that my hamstrings feel "tight". Could it be related to the long flights? I am also on a high protein diet - could that be contributing?

Dear Jane
The one thing one must be careful is of developing a blood clot after a long flight - rather let your doctor have a look at your legs to be safe.
