Leg pain is a very common complaint many people suffer from. Even though it sounds simple, diagnosing the cause of leg pain can be difficult, because there are so many things that cause it.
You may begin to notice a dull, consistent pain in your leg, and the inability to keep your foot warm. Leg cramping, or "charley horse" spasms causing involuntary contraction of muscles may occur. You may experience imbalance, and swelling of the joints, or arthritic stiffness, or shooting pains from sciatic involvement causing dificulty in sitting or walking.
Other illnesses such as Lupus, Lyme Disease, or bacterial infections can also be the source of pain.
