Lumps in legs during old age. Sleeplessness due to pain. Take painkillers?

m 89 years old and have since a few month hard lumbs coming up anywhere in my legs and going and coming back. Had to get out of bed just now because could not sleep because pain is bad. Have legs elevated when sitting and trying to sleep. Have a recliner chair. Until about 2 months ago It was not so bad painwise, but suddenly it got worse. Do I have to take painkillers to get ridf of the pain?
