Dear Dharminder,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Pain in lower limbs is commonly associated with back issues. Other possibilities are a vascular deficit, muscle inflammation, venous thrombosis, neuropathy and so on. A thorough clinical examination is warranted to rule out the aforementioned possibilities.

Treatment and recovery depends on the cause.

You need to sit and discuss with your examining doctor about the true nature of problem, its relationshp with aforementioned possibilities and the type of treatment needed.

Hope this answers your query.
