ABSTRACT
MY LEGS have recently become very painful and hurt from my knees up to my buttocks. I now have trouble walking upstairs and standing up from a seated position, and I can't sleep on my side due to the pain. I suffer from varicose veins on my legs, and also take statins — could either of these be to blame? I am 55.
