Hi there,
There can be several causes of pain in legs below the patella, Arthritis, sciatica; neuropathy and deep vein thrombosis are few of them. Shin splints, strains, sprains, compartment syndrome and peripheral artery disease are few other causes of leg pains. In deep vein thrombosis a thrombus develops in a deep vein. The clot tends to occur in leg veins and the thrombus can cause pulmonary embolism. There is swelling, pain, tenderness, and warmth in the affected area. The surface veins may become engorged. A physical examination and investigations like Doppler ultrasound may help in confirming the diagnosis. Seek medical help. Do keep me posted.
Best of luck and regards!

Are you still feeling pain in legs below the knee cap?  Do you have any swelling? is there any redness? Does the area feel warm?
