What is the cause of chronic pain in the legs, arms and chest with palpitations, nausea and dizziness ?

Hi...I am having chronic pain in my legs, mostly my left side...the way I would describe it?

I am 44, female in very good physical shape, not overweight and I eat a very balanced diet...

General & Family Physician 's  Response should immediately get a Doppler ultrasound of your legs to rule out Deep vein must be travelling a lot in flights which requires prolonged sitting...start wearing tight elastic stockings on your legs...if there are visible tortuous veins on your legs it can be varicose veins too.get an ECHO and Chest X ray too to rule out any cardio pulmonary involvement

Your symptoms are suggestive of aortic disease - mostly of atherosclerotic origin.
As pain is getting worse in leg; look for discoloration,severe pain on movement. If it occurs, consult physician immediately.
Even-though you are not overweight; consult doctor and rule out heart disease.
Also it can be disc problem but pain will be radiating from lower back. Palpitations , dizziness will be absent.
Take care.

Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.

Hello Harri,

Welcome on HCM.
You might be suffering from Deep Venous Thrombosis.
So don't take it lightly and get fully checked by your family doctor.
And come with all reports.
