I've been experiencing off and on leg pain. The pain is from the knee down to my foot and it's a dull ache. At my doctor's suggestion I stopped my cholesterol medicine for a month and although it's happened Lee's often I still get the pains now and then. And it's been a month since I've been off my cholesterol medicine. I know this is not a blood clot because I've had a blood clot and I know how they feel. It seems to come on when I'm spend most of my day lying down. I am very inactive because I have a bad lower back with lots of pain and I have an autoimmune disorder called PMR. PMR causes a great deal of fatigue and a lot of muscle pain. I've read the description of sciatica and neuropathy and both of them talk about tangling and pain running down the back of the leg. I just don't have any of that at all. Plus it doesn't run from my back all the way down my leg. The pain starts at my knee. And the pain can be in either leg or both at the same time. I've done research on Doctor Google and I can't find anything that it fits which is why I'm turning to this forum hoping somebody here might have some suggestions. Oh one last thing I am taking magnesium for foot cramps that I was getting and that has solved my foot cramp problem.
