Hi

Dull-aching of the legs is a common symptom. It can be due to several causes like muscle fatigue, muscle cramps, injuries, inflammation, varicose veins, neurological causes like peripheral neuropathy / sciatica, dehydration, atherosclerosis, arthritis, gout, depletion of minerals like potassium or sodium, medications such as diuretics / statins, bone tumours and several other conditions.

You should consult a doctor for a complete evaluation. Various investigations can be blood workup, arteriogram, bone scan, X-ray / MRI / ultrasound. Treatment generally depends on the cause. In the meanwhile, you may try some pain-killers like NSAIDs and multivitamin supplements.

A general advice would be to stop smoking and alcohol, practice regular exercise, weight control and get your blood sugar and thyroid status checked regularly.
Take care
