I often get pain in my legs. This happens suddenly, sometimes waking up to recurrence, or before a break after work. Please respond. What should be done, because he often went to the hospital to get stuck in his lab blood check. Without clarity what is suffered. Finally, I checked he said he was hit by a virus that causes pain. Thank you for your response, sorry if there is a word wrong.
