Greetings HW....Haven't logged on in awhile....
Does anyone have to deal burning in the front of the thighs? This is about to drive my last nerve nuts!!
If so, what are you doing to find some relief?

I had severe burning in my feet and it was  starting in my calfs. After the doc put me on Lyrica it has almost disappeared.
Hope that helps

It sounds like neuropathy. Lyrica, if you can take it, may help. If not Neurontin has been around a whole lot longer and many find it helps.

Hi - I also get burning in my legs. I thought it was RLS and take Klonopin at night for it, but I find that it also comes during the day as well. I can only describe it as like an inside-out sunburn.
Hope you get some relief!

I get the burning in the front of the thighs, it's worse in my left thigh.  The burning is strong and deep into the thigh.  This pain subsided when my doctor put me on nortriptyline(?), it didn't go away but it is tolerable now. 

I hope you find relief soon!

I have this pain, it is in the front, but lately the back of my thighs are really hurting and painful. feels almost like a charley horse of the back of the thigh \when I stretch for something up high. Hurts so bad it makes me feel an immediate panic and also tears appear. dangit.
