I've been searching the internet for awhile and still haven't found an answer
I've been having almost unbearable leg pain for awhile now. It'll happen when i'm sitting/laying down. I don't know what exactly triggers it. Usually its because i'm not laying straight. It comes and goes, more frequently then I would like. It's kind of like a pulling sensation that starts just about my knee and extends down to my just above my ankle. At first I though I just pulled something, but these pains have been happening for months. They started out really bad, went away, and came back about a month later. They were dull and spaced-out, but now they're bad and I have no idea what to do about it. I would rather not go see a doctor.

Yeah, I started to, but once my leg pain kicked in I really couldn't anymore. But my pain started before that.

There could be so many reasons for leg pain. I've had it my entire life when I exercise or try to walk a good distance. I went from doctor to doctor and no answers. Just a bunch of negative tests. One thing they did find was a Vit. D deficiency. I never realized how much Vit. D controls pain in your body. I've been taking the Vit. D for almost a month now and I am pain free, except for the sore muscles from yoga.
