For the last three weeks I have been having
severe pain in either the femoral artery or
great saphenous vein! My 13 year old son after
checking his Grays Anatomy book for the areas of my pain
is not sure if there is any ligaments in these locations. The
pain is immense when I stand from sitting or
when I bend at the waste and than squat, turn
or part my legs! Almost feels like my muscles,
veins, tendons and ligaments are being ripped
and dragged across nail tips. The pain rips
through the top and inner thigh and shoots
across under my right knee cap. Sometimes there
is a sounds like a clunk and feels like
something is being sling shotted across my knee
and thigh. The pain started in my right leg but
I am beginning to get the same in my left leg
as well. This pain subsides just to start again
if I bend at my knees, twist my leg the wrong
way or raise my legs in bent form while standing.
I can`t sleep anymore until I am totally exhausted
from lack of sleep. Due to being a restless sleeper
that turns and tosses there is no sense in trying
to sleep. When I turn the pain just wakes me. I work
out on exercise equipment at home now due to the long
winter at hand, running walking, bike riding, and
love going for walks outdoors. I am not sure if
doing the earlier exercises are just worsening the
effects from whatever is causing this pain. I am seriously
worried about this as I am also beginning to have pain,
weakness, tingling and fatigue in all my muscles
including neck, back and arms.
