What could this be? I occasionally get some pain on the outside of my right thigh, about 4 inches or so above my knee. I can see a couple of veins there, but they aren't swollen. The area is not red or anything like that. It feels like it is bruised, but there is no discoloration. Today I noticed it when I tried to fold my left leg under my right sitting at my desk (I know, that's bad) and when I bend my right leg a certain way. This pain is not always present. Does anyone have any thoughts? Could it just be the way I sit?
