I think we need a bit more context to give a better answer. ...Read more

Why does my leg/hip hurt more with rest. Esp if elevated takes 10 mins to weight bare each time? I do have quite bad varicose veins on both legs.

It does not prevent occurrence of symptoms long term. Compression stockings can be real helpful on day to day basis to prevent pooling. Eventually may need vein ablation after a proper evaluation. Hope this helps. ...Read more

First I sleep often on the sofa . Problem is when humid my hands legs feet hurt like my muscles or bones can it be cancer? Im waiting for X-ray

It depends/nore info: More info. Is likely needed to be sure of what this is. It may be that the humidity is doing this, that you may be sensitive to it, and that you need to replenish fluids.
