Leg ache from knee down almost a restless feeling but quite strong pain happens about 1 to 2 times a week?

Varicose veins?: If the ache is most noticeable when you have been on your feet for an especially long time during the day, varicose veins could certainly be one of the possible causes for your symptoms. If you have some very prominent visible veins, it is worth it to see a vein specialist/phlebologist. If you have some visible veins that aren't very prominent, you might want to try compression stockings. ...Read more

34 female I have fever once every 2 months with very sharp leg ache in calf and front. Happening since june 2014. No other symptom. What it can be?

Maybe muscle cramps: I sorry to hear about this. Regarding the fever, what do you call a fever? Doctors classify fever as a temp over 101.3F or 38.5C. Do you have a temp this high every 2 months. Is there any redness around the skin of the calf?
But this could be just muscle cramps. You could try eating more bananas for potassium which can help for cramps. Water also helps for cramps. ...Read more

Why does my whole leg ache from osteoarthritis in my knees?

Will genital herpes cause buttock ache/ back of leg ache even though rash is elsewhere? I.e penis

Will genital herpes cause buttock ache/ back of leg ache even though rash is elsewhere? I.e penis

Probably not, but...: This depends on the nature and timing of the pain. If the buttock/leg discomfort is only during a genital herpes outbreak, or starts 1-2 days before, and if it clears up in another 1-2 days, they may be linked. However, herpes doesn't cause chronic or persistent, ongoing, deeper back, buttock or leg pain, that doesn't accompany outbreaks. In that case, it's an entirely separate problem. ...Read more

Last 2 times, few hours after remicade (infliximab) infusion, developed severe leg ache for 24 hrs due to late reaction. How to prevent this from recurring?

????: This is a significant side effect that your doctor needs to know about. One might surmise that being especially well-hydrated before the infusion might be helpful, but your doctor will want to know about this before deciding to proceed with more infusions. Be sure you discuss this with him/her before the next infusion...the reaction might be more severe next time. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Will losing weight help me with my aching leg pain I'm a mother of 4 and had my last 6 months ago and I need to lose 15kg?

Potentially: It depends somewhat on the exact cause of your pain, and you should consider being seen just to make sure that the cause of the problem is diagnosed. Some causes of leg pain are potentially life threatening, including a deep vein thrombosis (blood clot). That being said, many causes of leg pain can improve with weight loss including arthritis of the hip or knee, sciatica, and venous disease. ...Read more

Growing Pains: In general growing leg pains should have happened earlier in your life. And so the work environment is much more likely to be playing a role in this situation. You may want to think about what shoes you wear and if they are contributing to the pain you are experiencing. ...Read more

Before ten days to my periods, I have a pain in my breasts and I have a leg pain also, and above all while periods, I have ahead ache also, is it normal?

Estrogen dominance: These symptoms have been described by other women but what it tells me is that you have peri-menopause or estrogen dominance. The main cause of this is when your period is coming your Progesterone level drops so that your estrogen has a greater effect. More estrogen causes headaches and breast tenderness. You can check your blood Estradiol and Progesterone and supplement Progesterone if needed. ...Read more

Left leg pain that's worse when hanging over a chair or bed. Butt cheek hurts too and whole leg aches. Driving me mad.

Your entire spine, hip, sacrum, pelvis, and extremities (arms/legs) will be evaluated, gait analysis too if it is sciatica, it can be easily treated. ...Read more

22yo female. Why does my leg ache when I walk and walk upstairs. Its not painful and is ok at rest pain doesn't get any worse and there is no swelling?

Blood flow?: You are really very young, but your symptoms are suspicious for poor circulation in the leg. More blood flow is required when you use the muscles to provide them with the oxygen to work. If they aren't getting enough, they burn fuels differently, lactic acid builds up in the muscles and they hurt. This is not uncommon in older smokers, diabetics, and other conditions with poor blood flow, but you? ...Read more
