Upper Thigh Joint Pain
If a patient with chronic psoriasis suddenly develops severe joint pain and pain in the thighs around the age of 40, what disease is indicated?
If I have had serious muscle and joint pain in my thighs and knees from taking different statin drugs, is there any statin drug that i can safely take?
Probably not: Most people with statin induced muscle pain will have it from all statins. There are other types of choelsterol lowering drugs that are not statins that can be tried including niacin. All drugs, however do have side effects so it can be difficult to find one you tolerate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Causes of some minor pain and aching in hip joint and upper thigh discomfort after total hip joint replacement?
Depends: Thigh pain in the front is usually from scar tissue from the hip joint tightening up from sitting too much. Stretching the hip and quad can help. Pain in the upper thigh behind the hip is usually from sciatic nerve irritation in the lumbar spine, or infrequently from scarring at the surgery site. I would ask your orthopaedic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi I have Si joint pain or piriformis,sharp pain in back, stabbing pain in thigh and calf it doesn't travel. now stabbing pain in front ankle,related?
Sciatica?: In my experience, "SI joint" and "Piriformis" syndromes are commonly over-diagnosed by mistake. Instead, I do see a lot of cases of sciatica from degenerate discs and pinched nerves in the lumbar spine. From your description, I wonder if you might have a pinched L5 nerve in your lumbar spine. http://www.spine-health.com/conditions/spine-anatomy/all-about-l5-s1-lumbosacral-joint ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Common : Common symptoms of spinal stenosis leg pain with walking can be caused by either arterial circulatory insufficiency or from spinal stenosis. Leg pain from either condition will go away with rest, but with spinal stenosis the patient usually has to sit down for a few minutes to ease the leg and often low back pain, whereas leg pain from vascular claudication will go away if the patient simply stops walking. Although occasionally the leg pain and stenosis symptoms will come on suddenly, they generally develop over the course of several years. The longer a patient with spinal stenosis stands or walks, the worse the leg pain will get. Flexing forward or sitting will open up the spinal canal and relieve the leg pain and other symptoms, but they recur if the patient gets back into an upright posture. Numbness and tingling can accompany the pain, but true weakness is a rare symptom of spinal stenosis. An older person leaning over the handle of their shopping cart while making short stumbling steps often has spinal stenosis. Muscle soreness in upper arms could be due to cervical stenosis but there are other reasons as well, like electrolyte imbalance, side effects of medications and myopathy. Recommend seeing a specialist for final diagnosis and treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
