Hi

Im new to all this so bare with me. Just wondering if anyone might be able to help me out or can relate to these leg pains I have been getting lately. I am diabetic and recently had tests for periphial vascular due to severe pain in calves when walking..all these tests cameback normal. Anyway, this pain comes and goes, but recently I have been getting this severe pain in my thigh which last for hours. It starts in the middle of my thigh then radiates around to the side of it. ITs like a dull aching, annoying type pain and nothing seems to help. Resting it makes it worse, walking still hurts. Im worried it may be a DVT however I dont want to go to drs and make a fool of myself if maybe it is muscular related?. I have scholiosis so Im wondering maybe if its back related, alhtough my back isnt hurting at the moment! Im really starting to stress as this pain is really frustrating and upsetting. Anyone else have similar thing, or can shed some light>? sorry for the long essay!!!

  • Hi,:) This is my first post - about two weeks ago I started getting thigh pain and also pain under my knee on the outside of the same leg and it feels quite warm in the leg area. When I walk I get a pain on each step and a sort of aching. I get it at night also and also if my legs are crossed (not sensible).I have not had this before and hoped it was just a pulled muscle - not too sure though. This pain, aching and warm leg - comes and goes thoughout the 24 hours........ I have not taken pain killers as I am on Omeprazole for hiatus hernia and gastronitis. I have not yet been to the Doctors as thought it was just muscle but not sure now.:eek: Any comments welcome :)
