View Full Version : Odd pain issues - Legs

This is may be a little odd but I thought I would throw it out there.
My mom is 83 and has for many years complained about her legs and feet feeling cold. She has been checked several times and they say her blood flow is normal. She is also very tender to the touch on her legs below the knees. You can barely touch her with your fingers and she will let out a yelp and you can tell she is in pain.

Now I am in my late 50's and this last year I began to notice that there are places on my hips that can't be pressed without causing much pain and even bruising. Also my legs are very tender and especially below the knees. When I rest them on the recliner leg rest they get very tender from the pressure. This seems to be getting slowly and progressively worse and not better.

As a side note we both have RLS as well.

Does anyone here know of something that causes this kind of pain in the lower extremities only?
