I am a 39 yo male, fairly fit and active, and have experienced a pain unlike any other i've experienced.
It occurs in my right thigh, 2/3 of the way down, behind the bone. It is a very intense, almost to the point of not being able to talk, pulses for a second or two, then goes away. I first experienced it 6 months ago when it happened several times a day for a few weeks, now more seldom. The sensation is that it affects an area running parallel to the bone, and about the length of my pinky, intense at the bottom, and fading as it goes up toward my arse. There is now a slighter sensation while I am descending stairs, as the extended leg contacts the next step. When first experienced, it could happen in a sitting or standing position.
I don't think it is dvt from what I've read, there is no swelling or redness or any other symptom.
I have no insurance so I'd really like to avoid seeing a doc if possible.
I have a high tolerance for pain, but this can be very intense and disconcerting.
