What should I do??

Hi I'm 16 and for almost a year now my left leg has had a horrible sharp pain that has recently gotten worse. The pain goes from the top and back side of my thigh down to my heel. I never remember any accident or trauma that has happened to my leg.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include muscle fatigue, infections/ inflammations, bursitis, tendonitis, neuro-muscular causes such as nerve impingement, neuropathies, myopathies, micronutrient deficiencies etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
