    I too have pain in my lower legs, starting just above my knes and going all the way to my feet. Majority of pain rests in my knees, calves and ankles, and this is gets worse as the day progresses to the point where it is excruciating in the late afternoon/evening.

    Interestingly my cfs doc recommended spine xrays for this, as problems with lower spine could be the cause of pain in lower legs - I'll be checking with my rheumatologist this week and can report back on this as a possible line of investigation. Until then i survive on constantly elevating my legs wherever/whenever possible, OTC pain drugs (that don't really do the job) and pregabalin that i take for back pain...as wellas ice/heatpacks :)

    These symptoms can also identify with vascular disease, i.e. plaque in the femoral arteries which can manifest as gradual increasing pain down the legs into
    the feet... .

    BTW, as addendum to my post, above, #60, I came across another source for dealing with burning feet, as I recall, from ‘Handbook of Natural Medicines.’ it’s Pantothenic
    Acid, Now Foods (available from regular supplements stores, eg Amazon). I bought a large bottle and have tried 1 cap, twice daily for the last month. It does seem to partially help - with the burning/pain sensation, but not the deeper ache, at least not yet. FWIW, This is one I would and have increased MDR on the label (for therapeutic dose.)

    Have you been tested for Small Fiber Neuropathy. It's done via a simple skin punch biopsy from the leg. I have Small Fiber Neuropathy and for me it causes symptoms like those you describe (along with others).
