This is my fist post as I found this site trying to find out what is going on with by upper left leg. So far doctors haven't found anything after looking at two xrays and one sonogram (checking for blood clots). It doesn't hurt all the time. I'm sitting right now and everything is fine. But if I were to walk continually for about a 5 to 10 minutes, a pain will began in what I believe to be the inner joint area of my leg and hip. It may not be the joint but a muscle in that area, I don't know. If I keep walking a pain will suddenly arise in the front of my upper thigh and it only hurts when I lift my leg. This is when it gets extremely painful causing be to stop walking. I can stand on it and put my weight on it with no problems. But the worst pain comes when I sit down. Like something is pulling or tearing. The doctors don't know what it is yet and I'm suppose to get an MRI done in a few days. The closest thing I can find that sounds like similar conditions is Piriformis syndrome. But my pain doesn't emanate from by buttocks. It's in the front of my leg and hurts the most when I sit down after walking for 5-10 minutes. If I lay straight for a while, I can sit up. I usually put ice on it and keep my legs together as this seems to reduce the pain somewhat. The doctor at the ER I went to last Saturday thinks it could be coming from my back. I do have a history of back pains that usually subside with ice and deep massage. I have been doing this with my leg and trying to stay off my feet all together. If anyone has a clue as to exactly what is going on, feel free to post. Any insight will be greatly appreciated. I'll post an update when I get the MRI done.
Thanks All. :)
