Anyone suffering from PAD??

Hey everyone!

I have a question. For quite some time I have been having really awful pains in my entire legs, buttocks, and lower back. I saw my PCP several times and she sent me for an EMG, which was normal, and put me on Neurontin. The pain is getting a tiny bit better with the neutrontin but I am still having really awful pain in my left calf muscle. It's like a tight, pulling feeling when I walk. I have no other symptoms besides pain, no discoloration, no warmness, no redness, but I have had tingling in my feet for some time. That has actually gotten a little better recently (dare I say it). My PCP insists all of my leg issues are back related and is sending me for an MRI of my lumber spine Friday but worried its something worse. The medicine has helped most of my leg pain but just not in my calves which worries me. I'm only 30 which I don't know if is too young for DVT or PAD. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had the same issues as me?! Thanks!!

I also just noticed a lump on the back of my left on my calf near a varicose vein. Again, no redness, warmth, or discoloration but the vein is clearly visible from the surface and u can see the lump from the surface too. I'm starting to freak myself out..
