my leg muscles have been sore for almost a year..walking doesn't bother me but getting up from a chair, getting out of a car or going up steps are when i feel the pain.. i am 42 yrs old and in good health and not overweight...the pain is mostly in my thighs. my thighs and hip area are tender to touch..and i am sore when i turn over in bed at night..the symptoms never go away. a arthritis doctor gave me a 6 day pack of prednisone and it took all soreness away till about 4 days after the last pill. and then the pain came back...i do feel that the soreness overall is getting worse because friends are noticing the way i step or get up from a seat...

  • I am 18 years old and have the same type of pain you're describing.. except I've had it for about 4 years now. I was recently told that I'm hypermobile (ie. not enough connective tissue in my joints= muscles have to work much harder to perform work) and that I've developed chronic bursitis b/c of it. So, you may have bursitis- inflammation of the bursa in your hips.... If they're sore to the touch and to move that may well be what it is. I was put on pain medication as well- anti-inflammatories- but had to stop b/c I had acid reflux. Best thing to do is get steady exercise such as yoga or pilates, try to strengthen the muscles in your legs (esp. around your hips and knees) and ice the area when sore. Hope this helps!

  • Have you asked your MD about the possibility of it being fibromyalgia?Fibromyalgia OverviewFibromyalgia is an illness that causes chronic pain in muscles and ligaments. Although this disorder affects about 4 million Americans, the vast majority of them are women in their mid-30s to late-50s. In addition to muscular pain and stiffness, this ailment can also cause fatigue, sleep problems, depression, and an inability to think clearly.http://www.emedicinehealth.com/fibromyalgia/article_em.htmhttp://www.emedicinehealth.com/fibromyalgia/article_em.htm
