Pain around back upper thigh area sometimes goes towards the inside of my leg. No redness seen or swelling. I have varicose veins. Could this be DVT?
Not likely: A DVT usually is in the medial portiion of the thigh. The upper back part of the thigh usually is more muscular and may hurt from muscular injury. Are you a runner or athlete of some sort? See your doctor tomorrow to be sure but this would be a very unusual place to occur. If the pain is not continuous toward the inner aspect of the leg.
19 year old female, excercises approx. 3 hrs. Daily MMA, Jujitsu, etc. Has had left upper thigh/pelvic dime size swell. Left hip just started to ache.
Diagnose: Treatment depends on cause. Is the pain aroused by directly palpating the region that hurts? If so then an x- ray might be indicated. I presume you mean front of thigh. If pain were in back of thigh likely sciatica caused by radiation of pain from nerves next to lumbar spine or pelvic girdle joints. Since pain goes not to foot is probably not lumbar disk problem. See osteopath for diagnosis.
Spinal issue: The upper thigh is innervated by nerves from the T4 and t5 interspinal nerve space. If the thigh at that spot is getting numb, then you might have to have an analysis of the spinal column. Do not see a chiropractor. See you family doctor for a start or an orthopedic surgeon who can make the proper diagnosis and treatment.
Several things: Upper thigh numbness is often due to something called meralgia paresthetica; this is due to a nerve that gets pinched in the front part of the upper thigh. This is more likely to happen if a person is overweight and has a belly, or wears tight fitting clothes. Weight loss, loose fitting clothes, and sometimes medications are the appropriate treatments.
Could be several...: If the back pain and thigh pain are related to same cause, likely a mid or higher lumbar disc - but could be separate related to the hip or muscles around the back and hip without a disc being involved. If persisting, see your pcp for exam or a physical medicine specialist or neurologist.
Is it numb also?: This could be a minor impingement of a skin nerve on the upper thigh. It more commonly presents as a patch of skin about the size of your palm on the upper thigh that has decreased sensation. This can flucuate in severity. Its more a nuisance than anything bad. Typically no treatment is needed.
