I'm a 47 year old male.
I have a pain on the outer thigh which is aggravated with physical activity, massage or compression. Rest periods of up to four months does not help much. One doctor could not see anything from a MRI scan. I took Arcoxia for two weeks ( 1 a day), and after a month of no medication, cataflam for three weeks. Neither was effective.
On the same leg, I feel pain under my heel when I sit for long periods. This pain goes away with exercise or leg elevation.
I have visible varicose veins from my knee all along my calves on the same leg. I'm confused since one pain is caused by exercise whil the other is relieved by it.
