Many possibilities here, start by varicose veins and possible lumber disc lesion , I recommend that you see a vascular doctor and do a lumber MRI
Good Luck

this may be due to early varicose veins due to prolonged standing or sitting for long periods of time due to your profession.
get a color doppler to confirm.
use varicose vein stockinettes while working.
calcium and vitamin D deficiency also can cause these symptoms.
Get these checked.

Thanks for the query.,

Pain in legs can be due to a number of causes like Varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis,Peripheral artery disease, being overweight etc..

Consult a Podiatrist or an Orthopedician and get evaluated so that proper investigation can be done after a clinical examination and treatment can be done accordingly..

As of now you should take painrelievers but try to limit the intake to only when there is pain..

Hope this information helps..
