Chronic Leg Pain

Hi everyone,
for more then 10 years I have had leg pain. I am 35 now. The pain is in my feet, ankles, knees groin area and now it sometimes works its way into my lower back. About 9 months ago I became ill with dizziness, spaciness, migrane, heavy sensations, hot/cold sensations and anxiety. In that time my leg pain has gotten worse. In the mornings it is in my feet and ankles and i will lay in bed stretching my feet trying to make them feel better. Soon after I get up the pain will creep up to my knees and later in groin area. It does not only affect my joints but the muscle tissue around them. Quite frequently my calf and hamstring have a burning sensation. They bother me all day every day it does not matter if I raise them if I am walking, standing or sitting. It seems that they hurt worse when sitting or crossing my legs. It use to be that they hurt real bad after a day of frequent squating. Now they hurt all the time. Let me add that they hurt less when walking but they feel so tired and fatigued that I cant walk much.

I doubt this is arthritis but I am not sure what board to post in so if anyone has any ideas please tell me. Also, I have told every doc I have seen this and they seem to be concentrating on my dizziness first. The last doc had my cholestoral checked and she said it was high enough that I should either take meds. or go on a diet.

Thanks

Derek
