Are and leg pain can come from several things. Nerves, muscles, bones, tendons. More details are needed to address your concern. Peripheral vascular disease is not likely at your age, but is possible with diseases that effects the blood vessels.

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. Drink more water. Wish you good health!
