Your symptoms could be related to restless limb syndrome, but at your age I would recommend you consult your doctor regarding peripheral vascular disease especially if you are or have been a smoker, are being treated for coronary artery disease or are diabetic.

This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.

Rash from sitting

Possibly. There are many causes of skin rashes in these areas, but sweating and friction is a common cause on the back of the upper legs.

Thigh high compression stockings pinch behind the knee whem I bend my knees. How do I stop this? What does it mean? Wearing during pregnancy

May not fit right

Knee_x-ray
Thigh high stocking that pinch and gather behind the knee may not be tight enough at the thigh and are falling down. You have several options . Get new stockings that are smaller at the thigh, buy a garter for the stocking, wear pantyhose, you can use an adhesive called it stays. It is fairly common for stocking that are bit loose to do this.

My buddy gave himself a shot of testosterone in the thigh for the first time, he almost falls to his knees when he tries walking. Any anwsers to this?

Who knows

Extremity-joint-knee
When you do really stupid things, bad stuff happens. Who knows what was int the shot or what he did when he injected himself. Infection is a big concern. Bleeding in the tissue is another. Toxic reaction to whatever what injected is another. Need to see a doctor soon.

Are the reflex reaction on your knees suppose to react on any part of the knee that is tapped? the top and sides of your thigh suppose to react ?

Only patella tendon

Extremity-joint-knee
the knee jerk or patella tendon reflex only occurs when the tendon is struck. The sides do not elicit the reflex.
