Wait a minute...: Back problems are not the only things that could cause your whole leg to hurt. Without a thorough examination it would be unwise not to include the possibility of other serious conditions such as arterial vascular disease or deep vein thrombosis. You might want to consult with your family doctor to start. It would be best not to delay in seeking care for too long.See 2 more doctor answers

My whole left leg hurts. Sometimes it is unbearable, but most of the times it is just a little bit pain. Is this a known disorder?
Sounds like: It is nerve pain originating from your low back. Any injuries? If there is any weakness of the muscles, you need to see a doctor because you might need nerve decompression. Is there any swelling? If so, it could be thrombophletis, a potentially dangerous condition. Can't tell for sure, but if it is just pain with no other symptoms, you probably will get better on rest alone.See 1 more doctor answer

I have a bruise with a knot underneath for 3 months now. My whole lower leg has been hurting alot lately. Do I need to worry?
Yes this is abnormal: See if physician get evaluated for this by primary care doctor or go to an urgent care
Helpful: An ice pack can diminish the swelling and lower the amount of bleeding in a bruised body part. You can use it for a day or two until the capillaries close off and healing starts.
Shouldn't hurt: Sometimes patients may have an localized ache from stretching of the blood vessel but this should go away in a couple days. Pain down the leg is not normal. Is the leg white or cold? Fever? If so see a doctor asap as the stent may have clotted or become infected. You should also probably be taking an Aspirin a day.See 1 more doctor answer
If you have injured: Your leg- an x-ray will be required to rule out a fracture. Take care.
Vascular damage: It is hard to tell but from your description there may be damage to blood vessels such as veins, that might initiate intermittent swelling. Your physician should be able to help identify tests that might clarify the swelling. These would be called vascular tests.
Difficult to say: Hard to say. Repetitive motion may play a factor.
Start simple Tx: Like cold compress, ibuprophen otc and rest. If it lasts more than a few days see a doctor for exam and/or x rays.
