Hi im been having a dull aching pain in my thighs and legs and I was wondering what it could be... Its not all the time just here.And there also I've been having knee pain and im 28 yrs old?

Can be too active.: If you exercise a lot, like bike riding, this can cause pain in your thighs and legs. It would explain your knee pain also. A lot of bending over, like during housework or gardening, can do it too. I would say take it easy for a few days, and if your pain persists, see your doctor to see if there is some other cause. Some simple painkillers, like Aspirin or tylemol, or advil (ibuprofen) can also help. ...Read more

Muscular strains/overuse can cause this-may need to stretch more. Are you on your feet all day? Foot wear and the surface you work on could result in cumulative stress. Get it checked. ...Read more

I had RT. leg pain..went to GP she sent me for an ultrasound.  Color Doppler came back negative for DVT.  Should I still be worried? I think the dull ache I have is coming from my lower right back..

Neg DVT; Rt Leg Pain: How long have you had the symptoms? Is your whole right leg involved or just one part (thigh vs calf)? Since your U/S was negative, you shouldn't be fearful. Short course of oral steroids (7 days) or Toradol (5 days) could help knock out this aching if your symptoms diffusely involve the whole right leg. If localized, to calf, might benefit from topical diclofenac gel instead of oral med. ...Read more
