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.

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? Doctor's 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?

Hard to say: Typically osteoarthritis in the knee causes pain limited to the knee itself and not really the whole leg.

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
