Maybe: Part of the decision about seriousness of this depends on how long and cause of the pain(like, injury or not).

I have a constant sharp pain in my  left thigh. This moves from my hip bone to my knee. What is this p, ease. And what medication should I use. Thank?

Mild discomfort and arthritis or overuse pains are often managed with Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen (advil/motrin or tylenol), but your doctor can tell you what is best for you. ...Read more

A primary care doctor, a gastrointestinal doctor, and a neurologist (or a physical medicine & rehabilitation doctor) are the ones that can evaluate to see where the problems are coming from and decide if treatment is needed. ...Read more
