Thigh muscle: The muscles in the front of the thigh include the medial and lateral as well as the middle thigh muscles. With pain in this location we need to have an evaluation of your hip, the other muscles of the anterior thigh such as the psoas muscles. This is something you're going to have in an evaluation even a hernia could cause a problem.

I have a small round spot on the back of my thigh that has small whitish bumps all in it and it is sore. This isn't the first time I have had this happen just thought it was a bug bite but since it keeps coming back I'm not really sure what it is ?

Viral Vrs bacterial: It is best to have your physician look at the bump but in short the bump sounds like a viral or bacterial infection. As it seems it recurs in the same spot this is most likely a viral infection. The treatment would be depending on the for sure diagnosis which is why you should see your doctor when the bump is active and has not been manipulated in any way. ...Read more

Help!where do I go. Having soreness on left pudenal side back of left thigh and calf this started about two weeks ago aches more when i stand up an di havenot done anything different too cause this. I must say I am very scared and worried presently taki

Leg : Leg pain can be caused by several different conditions. Muscle pain or strain can cause leg pain, is more common after an injury or sports-related event, and is worse with activity. Pain in the leg can be caused by nerve pain from the back, in which case there is usually back pain, and the pain is worse with walking and standing. Pain in the leg can be caused rarely by blood clots, in which case the pain is usually worse if the leg is down, and sometimes associated with swelling. Sometimes Pravachol (pravastatin) can cause muscle pain but that shouldn't be just in one leg. If a patient has new onset of leg pain that is persistent, they should have an evaluation by their physician. ...Read more

My thighs have been sore for two months with no lower back pain. Can ddd cause this? That is my diagnosis?.

Not Likely: Degenerative disc disease alone usually causes primarily low back pain. There may be some radiating leg pain with it due to local nerve root irritation and referred pain but it is unusual for ddd to cause primarily thigh pain. There may be disc bulging or lumbar stenosis with nerve root compression or it may not be related to your back at all. ...Read more

I got a couple small cuts on the front of my thigh. Are bruising, a small amount of redness, and leg soreness normal?

I got a couple small cuts on the front of my thigh. Are bruising, a small amount of redness, and leg soreness normal?

Can be: This can be tricky because soreness and redness are characteristics of both recent trauma and infection. I would monitor the area to make sure that it isn't getting worse. Increasing erythema (redness), pain, edema (swelling) and or induration (hardening) of the skin are signs of infection that should be evaluated. I hope this helps. ...Read more

I have a very sore patch of skin next to my ribs and going to my back, no rash, I had the same at top of my thigh a day or so prior, is this shingles?

Herpes zoster: Shingles is a recurrence of infection with the virus that causes chickenpox. It appears one-sided and encompasses one nerve root segment, although rarely it can cover more than one. It can appear initially as tenderness over such an area, usually followed by the outbreak of an eruption. Whether this is what you have cannot be determined over the net without an exam. See your doctor. ...Read more

I had protected sex yesterday and today I have a sore throat, head, back and inner thighs, is this a coincidence or could something be wrong with me?

No STD. Exercise?: No STD or other infection can cause symptoms in under a day. Maybe muscle aching due to vigorous sex or new position(s)? Sore throat sometimes can result from vigorously performing oral sex. But if it's an infection, STDs don't cause such symptoms; it sounds like a cold or something similar probably acquired at least a day or two before the sexual exposure. See a doctor if you remain concerned. ...Read more
