Thanks Susie. No, I haven't had an MRI recently. I was surprised that the ortho I saw didn't order one. In fact, I had to ask him for a P.T. prescript
ion. I went to him because he had such good reviews.
The thigh pain I get is severe aching. I get it in the other thigh too, even though that knee doesn't hurt. I was thinking it was something like sympathetic pain in that other leg. It actually bothers me more than the knee pain.
I also wonder about
my prolapsing bladder, etc. Seems like it could cause thigh pain, but all the docs said "no, I wouldn't think that would cause leg pain." Seems like it could to me. Nobody seems to want to think about
anything but their specialty.
I have a very complicated/confusing system.
I was considering acupuncture. Have you ever heard of that helping knee/thigh pain?
It's pretty scary how much some docs encourage steroid use. Some people trust what they say, then get into even more troubles after using it too often.
