- Common in all age groups


Symptoms


Leg pain can come with symptoms like a dull or stabbing sharp pain sometimes in the localized area of the leg. This makes walking and bearing weight harder.
In case of a muscle cramp, redness and swelling like a lump are observed.
This condition comes with symptoms like inflammation of a tendon, in case of tendinitis.
In muscle strain, unbearable pain is experienced in stretching the muscle.


Treatment


Self-treatable:
Most of the leg cramps occur due to muscle fatigue and dehydration which can be treated with OTC medications. Apply an ice pack and place your leg on elevated surfaces at rest as much as possible. Various pain relieving treatments are available to cure any inflammations and severe joint pains.


Medications
Painkillers can be taken. Prescribed medications are advisable in case of severe conditions like deep vein thrombosis, arthritis, and varicose veins.
