Pain Management/Re: Leg Pain

Question
Can you help me? I am an old man(65 year).I am very fond of walking,but presently constrained for the following
If you help me I will be obliged
I have some(little)knee pain(NOT MUCH),BUT HAVE GOT GOOD PAIN IN TIBIA(Front bone in between knee and foot)and heavy calf muscle pain which aggravates during walking.Leg veins are PROMINENT,NO SWELLING ANYWHERE
         In the Doppler Study (Ultrasonography) of Lower Limbs it has been seen NO EVIDENCE OF DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS(NO VEINOUS PROBLEM) ,BUT Diffuse ARTHEROSCLEROTIC WALL THICKENING OF Lower Limb Arteries with NORMAL COLOUR FLOW AND FLOW VELOCITIES.PULSE RATE AT FOOT IS NORMAL
 My Uric Acid/Blood Sugar/Calcium Levels are normal.But my cholesterol level is somewhat abnormal as follows
LIPID PROFILE
TOTAL CHOLESTEROL 239 mg/dL          HDL CHOLESTEROL 40 mg/dL
LDL CHOLESTEROL 144 mg/dL
TRIGLYCERIDES    275mg/dL
VLDL COLESTEROLS  55  mg/dL
My question is whether the problem is due to (Peripheral Artery Disease )
     or the pain is caused by other things such as
1)Although there is no pain sometime while bending the knees some sound comes.If the problem radiates to lower limbs from Knee Arthritis.However Range of Motion of Knee is not at all restricted
2)As the calf muscle pain is prominent whether there is Muscle Dystrophy
3)As the pain is in the TIBIA region whether there is any problem of TIBIA NERVE Pain
$)Vein problem is ruled out by SONOGRAPHY
         I have already started taking Atorvastatin-10 and Fenofibrate 160 and Ecosprin 75(Aspirin).My Blood Pressure is normal with medication(Losartan-50,one tablet daily).But to improve Claudication(problem in walking )what medicine I should take in addition to regular walking(exercise).
       PLEASE HELP.With thanks
