Leg Pain In Upper Thigh
I am having a lot of bad leg pain around the knee, upper thigh, and above my ankle on my driving leg, especially when I am driving. Lasting weeks.
Lower extremity pain: First of all, we need to know if there is a history of trauma. If there is trauma, you need x-rays and possibly an MRI and blood tests. If there is not trauma and this happened spontaneously, there are a few conditions that have to be ruled out. Pain has to have a source. Do you suffer from low back problems? Are you active in sports? Do you have circulation issues? We need a better history. ...Read more
Left leg pain, above ankle and upper thigh, side, comes and goes. Been 5 days. I'm worried for a blood cloth. What symtops are for dvt? Er?!
Unlikely to be DVT.: DVT is usually characterized by aching pain in the entire limb and 5 days after the onset would also show swelling of the leg extending proximally. The limb may also feel warm and tender. Since certain medications, pregnancy and trauma may also predispose, would look into these. Do not seen urgent need for ER but would consult with primary care doctor without delay. ...Read more

Many Possibilities: Depending on how long it's been going on, I would consider an evaluation by a pain/spine specialist. Sometimes it could be a muscle imbalance, early onset arthritis or scoliosis.

Felt like something popped in upper thigh so now I can't lift leg or run but can walk. What's that?
You may have strained your hip flexor muscles (psoas/rectus femorus) required for 'lifing your leg or running'
a 'groin pull' is also caused over-stretching of the adductor muscles (which include the adductor magnus, longus, brevis.)
treatment is r.I.C.E : rest, ice, crutches, elevate then slow stetching. See also http://www. Sports-injury-info. Com/hip-flexor-injury. Html. ...Read more
My husband got shot in his upper thigh. Femur got replaced with metal rod. Why is his leg shorter than the other? Will this affected his back?
Yes: The doctors who placed rod were perhaps not as skillful as they might have been, although placement of a metal rod to replace a shattered femur, to save a leg, and preserve function is no mean feat. In the old days it would have been simply off with the leg. A unilateral short leg can impose mechanical stress on sacroiliac joints of the pelvis and, over time with repetative stress, loosen them. ...Read more

Yes: You are describing nerve pain. An EMG consists of testing the health and speed of your nerve function, followed by electrode insertion to the muscle for a specialist to access the nerve and muscle connections. This will answer the question of what nerve is causing your pain. Treatment and symptom control begin with a real diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read more
