I have been having pain in my right front thigh area for over a year. An MRI, x-ray, and Ortho visit has proven negative. When I stand I sometimes have excruciating pain. After standing still for a few minutes, the pain goes away. If I strecth, the pain is very evident. Medicines have not helped either.
How are you? Thigh pain could be due to musculoskeletal or neurological causes. It is good that the MRI and x-ray results were normal. Aside from these, I also recommend that EMG and nerve conduction studies be done to rule out neurological causes. If medicines do not help, inform your doctor about this for stronger prescription medicines. Take care and do keep us posted.
I developed frontal thigh pain in both legs after I had a knee replacement in the right knee. I have had an EMG and it showed that the pain was not coming from my spine. The pain is relieved when I am sitting but upon standing or walking, the pain is so severe that I cannot walk. I am only 62 years old and too young to be wheel chair bound. I take meds for fibromyalgia without success and strong pain relievers are not effective. It is extremely painful when I sleep and I have to take muscle relaxant to sleep. What is this? I am so frustrated! I want my life back.
I do understand your concerns about this. Were you able to go back to your surgeon for follow-up? Aside from nerve damage, other considerations include blood clot, infection, inflammation or atherosclerosis that blocks blood flow in the arteries. Atherosclerosis is a type of pain or claudication that is generally felt when exercising or walking and relieved by rest. Additional diagnostics such as arteriogram to check blood flow and Duplex Doppler/ultrasound exam to look for a blood clot may help. Treatment depends on the cause. Talk to your doctor about this. Take care always.
