Depends: Determining the treatment for leg pain depends heavily on the cause of the leg pain. If you are having leg pains, then it is advisable to see your physician to determine the cause of the pain and then to administer proper treatment to alleviate the pain.

Depends: It would depend on what is causing the leg pain. I would advise evaluation by a physician to rule out serious causes of leg pain such as blood clots.
