For the last four years, whenever I get exposed to extreme cold (less than 30 degree F), my left thigh muscle become hard. I can feel that the thigh muscles have become contracted. On pressing the muscles from the rear side of the thigh, I feel extreme pain. There are three hard lumps formed.

First diagnosed with Bursitis. Administered cortisone injection.
There was no releif. X ray and MRI did not reveal any problem.
Then I was sent for physiotherapy. After a month in physiotherapy, there was no relief.

Then I tried Accupressure. It gave temporary relief (for 6 months) but the lumps did not disappear.

I only have this problem in winter.

I've been to three specialists so far but not of them were able to diagnose.

If anyone is aware of this, please let me know if any treatment is available.
