Causes of leg pain with activity can be circulatory where you have an inadequate blood supply to the affected leg, can also be joint related or can be nerve related where a nerve is being pinched by a disc out of place in the lower back. As this is a persistent problem I would suggest you see your GP for diagnosis and referral to the appropriate specialist. This would be a vascular surgeon for circulation or an orthopaedic specialist for joint and back issues. Specialist referral will depend on diagnosis.
