Get diagnosed first: There are a number of things that can cause pain in the legs. This is a very nonspecific symptom. I recommend that someone pain in this area should be seen by orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon for a definitive diagnosis so that appropriate treatment can be started. You can find one in your area at www.Aofas.Org.
