Leg Pain

If you lay down at night and your legs stiffen up with pain, you are experiencing leg pain. If you come back from your sports game worn out and your legs hurt, you are experiencing leg pain. If you’ve been sitting with your knees bent all day playing video games and your legs start to hurt, you are experiencing leg pain.

Leg pain at night. If your leg stiffens and causes pain at night, this could be a muscle cramp due to overuse or dehydration.
Leg pain from sports. Leg pain could be from overuse or possibly an injury.
Leg pain while sitting. Leg pain from sitting all day, especially with your knees bent, could be due to poor circulation.

There are simple ways to treat these types of leg pain: rest, hydrate, and take frequent breaks from sitting. If your pain is due to an injury or you believe it could be symptoms of something worse, contact Pegasus Pain Management.
