Hallo Rika
Pain in the legs could be due to referred pain from the pelvis (ovarian cysts/pelvic infection) or the lower back (pinched nerve roots) if no problems are found on examination of the legs (like blood clots or blood flow problems) Have they ever checked your kidney arteries for abnormalities or for adrenal tumours with a sonar (causes of abnormal varying bloodpressure spikes)? I would also think that an x/ray of the back is indicated to exclude a collapsed vertebra. Ask your doctor to refer you to a physician for further tests.
