Am I just paranoid about this being a side effect or is something else going on with me? My legs hurt as well, but I don't know if it's from driving all of last night or a side effect. Should I take the ring out now?
Leg pain is a serious side effect, you must seek medical attention asap.-
Also numbness of an arm or leg is a serious side effect.-
I suggest you go to the ER now.-
