Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. I am very sorry to hear about your pain, I'm not sure I understand exactly where you pain is so please bear with me.
If I understand correctly the pain is on the outer aspect of one thigh and in the upper region of you thigh on the other leg. Do you have knots in the outer thigh that hurt just to touch? The big toe could be related.
If those are your symptoms several things come to mind as I have very similar pain. It could be a hip bursitis in the leg that has pain on the outer aspect and or it could be your SIJ's (sacroiliac joint(s) or it could be an issue with the structure of you sacral spine. As stated earlier I have those symptoms and I have bursitis that flares in my hip joint(s), SIJ Dysfunction ans cysts on the nerve roots of my spine.
Have you had a MRI? If not it might be a good place to begin. Usually bursitis can be diagnosed with a clinical examination as is SIJ Syndrome or Dysfunction. I suggest that you consult with a D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy). There are extensively trained and educated in the structure and function of the bones (ligaments and tendons) of your body. You may require a referral to a orthopedic specialist also but I would begin with a D.O. After years with these strange pains that no MD could diagnosis (it was all in my head) a D.O. initially diagnosed and later proved my painful condition.
Understand that I am not telling you that this is what you have, it is only a thought based on my personal experience. Warm moist compresses to the painful areas have helped ease my discomfort. I took IB until I ruined my stomach with little releif. Muscle relaxants did (does) help some and now I take opiates routinely.
Others will post with their suggestions. I wish you the best of luck. Keep searching for a diagnosis. I let mine go so long that it is an untreatable chronic condition. I have permanent damage. Please don't let this happen to you.
I will look forward to your updates. Take care and good luck.
