Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
you could have venous status in your legs or poor circulation or even cellulitis soft tissue infection in your legs
you could be coming down with a viral infection or you could have abnormal thyroid hormone levels causing your symptoms
you should see a doctor right away and see if you have a cellulitis infection
you might need an ultrasound of your leg to check for poor circulation or blood clots in your legs
you need blood testing to check for infection and thyroid hormone levels
do you have a doctor you can see right away?
or you can go to the ER or urgent care center to see a doctor for testing.
