I'm actually from the fibro and chronic pain forums, but saw this one and thought I'd ask your opinion.
For several months now, almost a year, I've had severe, very painful, deep pain in my right leg. It started about 4 inches below the knee (NOT knee related) and feels very deep as in the bones almost. Well, now it's killing the entire upper thigh area, still feels very deep, wakes me from a dead sleep, and I either limp when it's hurting or sometimes I can't even walk on the leg.
I've been checked for Peripheral Artery Disease, blood clots (blood tests only), and my circulation is normal.
Does anyone have any ideas I could toss at the doctor this a.m.? I leave in 4 hours to see her and would appreciate it if anyone could help. I was in the medical field myself, but am also at a loss.
Thanks a bunch!
