Hello. I have had this lump, about the size of a grape, in my right outer thigh since around 1999. It never bothered me until about 2-3 years ago when it started to throb occasionally, and if I bumped it against something it was really uncomfortable. Then it gradually started to randomly ache so I went to the doctor. They told me it was probably a Lipoma and no big deal.
For at least the past year it has been hurting so bad that sometimes my whole leg just stops working. I almost fell on my face in Whole Foods when it happened the first time. My whole leg will like, vibrate, with the ache. It's a deep throbbing ache and feels like my marrow is being slowly sucked out of my bones or something. And when it hurts like that I get really nauseous. The last "doctor" I saw (he was really just a lab tech), after doing the ultrasound, looked at me and said, "You know, something up here in your leg cannot make it hurt down by your ankle." (because I said it caused my whole leg to throb and sometimes give out). He talked to me like an 8 year old who was faking a booboo for attention.
I'm just getting concerned because the pain and nausea are intensifying and I don't know what to do. I've been shuffled around various doctors for the past 2 years and they seem like they could care less. Can a Lipoma cause pain and nausea like this? It's not a sharp pain like a burn or stab wound or something, it's deep and insidious.
My friend suggested going to the ER and proclaiming that if they don't help me I will cut it out myself. I'm not sure I'm ready to be chained up in a psych ward just yet, but if the pain gets any worse I am going to go nuts.
