Hello,

There are many causes for leg pain in elderly patients. The most common are arthritis, osteoporosis, thrombosis or electrolyte imbalance etc. I suggest you to consult with doctor because it isn't common she can't walk. I suggest to do X-ray and Doppler ultrasound.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Blerina Pasho, General & Family Physician
