What are possible causes of left leg pain?


Answer by  Purple (948)

Poor circulation and being over weight could be the problem. Also, sciatic nerve pain could be the problem. That shoots down one side of the leg or hip area and causes great pain. You will need a muscle relaxer and therapy on that area would help the muscles and pain to go away. Try using an infrared heat at home.

This depends on what "type" of pain it is. For example, if it is a shooting pain, take note of where it shoots from and this area is probably the source of the problem. If it is a tender local pain, this may indicate muscle sprain or tear.

Trauma - you may have injured yourself by falling or running into something. It could also be a bite from an insect or animal, a scratch that has been infected. It could also be a sign of a heart attack, a muscle infarction, or general loss of blood flow to extremity.
