Intermittent, sharp, shooting pain in thigh and knee area felt in buttocks. DVT ruled out. Reason?

I have been having intermittent., sharp, shooting pain in the lower, inner thigh area were the lower thigh and knee connects. Sometimes the pain hit and I can feel it throughout my thigh and buttocks . A few days ago a bruise developed for no apparent reason. I went to my doctor a month ago and he did an ultrasound which showed there was not a DVT there, but still the problem continues.

You have described well.
Pain is radiating from the buttock to thigh & below.
It’s called radiculopathy.
In our back we have vertebral column.
In between 2 vertebra cartilage disc is there.
Disc problem cause pain as it irritates the spinal nerves.
Bruise is not related to it.
You should have x-ray of lumbosacral region ap & lateral view under a orthopaedic doctor.
Don’t worry.
Wish you good health.
