Before answering this question, it would be better to define what exactly is meant by the term "upper leg". Orthopaedic surgeons (and others) typically use the term "thigh" to mean the area between the hip and the knee. They use the term "leg" to mean the area between the knee and the ankle. Thus, it is important to specify whether we are discussing pain just below the hip or ...Read more

Rigors: You may be in the process of having a cold before the fevers. Drink plenty of liquids and take a tylenol (acetaminophen) and that will help with the chills if it is a cold.
