Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
A repeat dopplar study of the involved leg should be done to rule out inflammation of veins, lymphatics and clots in veins. A MRI of the inflamed area should be done. Sharp thigh and hip pain with limited and painful internal rotation of the thigh along with tingling and pain can be due to several causes such as: osteoarthritis, tendonitis, muscle pull and strain, femoral neck stress fractures, sports hernia or hidden/occult hernia of oblique aponeurosis, or Obturator or ilioinguinal nerve entrapment.
You would need all or any of the following for diagnosis: Clinical examination by an orthopedic specialist, X-rays, blood tests, MRI or ultrasonnography.
Hope this helps. Take care!
I suffered the same symptoms ... looked up information on "Pain in the Butt Syndrome" no joke, that IS what its called ...
Hope this helps ...
check with a heart doctor, and a pain management doctor.
the swelling could be due to heart or kidneys malfunctioning, and ur pain could be due to ur disc in ur lower back area.
My mother has a similar pain, hers is her sciatic nerve, its a disease called sciatia im pretty sure. you could try googling that.
Hi guys, thank you all for your advice. I will check out that website. I should have mentioned the things that have been ruled out along the way: I did see a heart specialist as one doctor thought I may have contracted infectious endocarditis because I have a mitral valve prolapse alreay but that checked out ok, I have also been tested for diabetes and kidney function and they were both ok, I've had a pelvic ultrasound which only showed some small fibroids in my uterus, not big enough to be causing any symptoms, a hip mri which didn't show anything, saw a vein specialist and no deep vein problems, an endocrinolgist who tested my thyroid function and other hormone related things and he found two things - Celiac Disease which is gluten intolerence and IgA deficiency but he didn't think either of those could be causing my symptoms but he is sending me to an immunologist to further investigate immune diseases as aparently people that have both Celiac disease and IgA deficiency sometimes have another auto-immune disease such as Lupus. Its so confusing because I have so many symptoms and its making it hard to make a diagnosis because no-one knows if they are related or not. I think the leg/butt pain is seperate to the swelling and bladder issue but others have been looking for one thing causing it all. The pain in my leg/butt is what bothers me the most of all the symptoms as it is a constant and debilitating pain. I am going to have an ultrasound of my hamstring tomorrow so we'll see if that shows anything. I am just about ready to give up and I have become very depressed by it all.
Hi,YES,ALL SYMPTOMS ARE RELATED.
