Pains in legs

I am 35 yrs. I am vegetarian. I never smoked and never taken alcohol in my life. Also I am not addicted with any type of tobacco. I have been suffering from pains in legs, waist and back for long time. I visited doctors. They did some X-Rays and blood tests. They didn’t find anything special and prescribed some medicines. In spite of those medicines, there are no satisfactory outcomes. If I do any small physical work related to my legs, my legs tremble/vibrate with pain. Is it related to weakness in my legs or it’s because of my leg ache? Please let me know how to recover it?
