Pain in the legs can be due to cramping (over exertion of the muscles), shin splints (micro fractures in the bone due to physical exercise) , varicose veins, inflamed tendons, medication like anticholesterol medicines ( statins) or gout medicines ( allopurinol), or reduced circulation in the legs.
Please let your doctor examine your legs and check the pulses, he may need to order a duplex doppler examination or x/rays of the legs and check your blood electrolytes and full blood count to determine the cause.
