Is there any chance of Myositis? Please help me. Am worrying. And there is also disc bulge in lumber spine at l3-l4 and l4-l5 was diagnoised. If myositis what should i do? I heared no cure for it. Please help me. Some times my muscles are twitching in calf thighs and shoulders. Please make me aware. Am afraid of this.

This pain is only due to nerve compression by the diac bulge and you should consult a physiotherapist, he will apply some modalities to relieve the pain  and some stretching exercises. You will get the relief for sure.. Then the exercises are very important. Take some vitamin B+ E supplements.

Greetings, sorry about your pain.  I will address your concerns in two aspects A.  If you have varicose veins you will have pain as ypu described.  rule this out first.  If positive go with advice of physician. B.  If the problem you described is as you said in your description, then not to worry. It is just a muscle spasm (trigger point)
Next Steps
get a very good massage to calf, lower limb, all over the body by a physio or any ayurveda masseur.  you should be about 50% better in first session.  do get couple of session to relax your muscles.
Health Tips
not a medical problem to be worried. after your massage sessions do let me know how you are doing.,will update on exercises and stretching to make sure it never reoccurs. reach me at time to clarify your doubts

This is not myositis . Muscular pain.. twitchings.. and persistent symptoms may be due to various reasons...only a clinical examination and detailed history taking is going to cone down to a diagnosis... managing it without diagnoais is not recommended .. Meet ur specialist . Meanwhile.. walking.. stretchs...ice packs .. tab paracetamol twice a day ...if no allergy ..may help
