Painful calves when climbing stairs?

Postby gibbo82 » Fri Feb 08, 2013 10:54 pm

Just wondering if anybody else suffers from extreme fatigue when climbing stairs? My calves start to feel like they are burning up after about 10 steps or so, when I reach the top and stop that's when more pain kicks in, my calves and legs start feeling really heavy with a intense burning sensation cud this be a build up of lactic acid!? Also my heart is pounding! Maybe through being unfit??

Yes, i find climbing stairs the most awful experience and the most hated thing I have to do due to the burn in the top of my legs. No one can ever know how awful it is they think we are lazy. It also send my heart loopy. X

It's really frustrating as I'm only 30 and I find climbing the stairs a real challenge! :( I'm finding as time goes stair climbing is making the symptoms in my legs worse!.

Does anybody know if this is caused by a build up of to much lactic acid in the legs?

It's strange as walking for me is fine, unless I over do it. It's them fricking stairs! Grrr. Lol

I have trouble with walking & real jelly legs if I walk up stairs. At home I go up on all 4's, at work I now use the lift :cry:
