What causes pain in the legs?

Hi Doc: My name is Miriam, Ive been experiencing leg pain on both legs when I sleep at night and when I recline on chair. I now have a bakers cyst on left leg. i had a venous doppler done to check for clots or ruptures and test came back clear. I have to follow up with ortho doctor but, just need to know if bakers cyst cause leg pain. although the pain is on both legs. Could dehydration or low potassium bring on these symthoms?

Baker's cyst can be a cause of compression of blood vessels or nerves below it so it depends where exactly is this cyst located.
About your second question, less Calcium or Vit D can cause severe lower limb pain. Get their levels in blood checked. Meanwhile eat a lot of poultry and Bananas and drink more milk.
Godspeed.
