Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation.
To relieve mild pain:
stay off your leg as much as possible
apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day
elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down
please go to a physiotherapist if:
you have pain during or after walking
you have swelling in both legs
your pain gets worse
your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment
you have painful varicose veins
if you feel the pain is from muscle cramp then you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps.
