Question: Pain in the thigh muscle especially when walking.

Could it be the muscle spasm or nerve demage in the thigh? That what the acupuncturist said. I already saw a doctor neurologist, he didn't know where the pain comes from.

Brief Answer:
Get MRI scan.

Detailed Answer:

I have read your query.

It seems you have pain due to compression in nerve which comes from lumbosacral region.

I advise you to visit orthopedic surgeon instead of neurologist, he will do your complete physical examination.

I also advise you to have MRI scan of lumbosacral region and send me the report, you can also discuss about MRI with your doctor.

I don't know why the neurologist had not advised you MRI scan.

Till then have tab. aceclofenac100mg+thiocolchicoside4mg twice a day, cap pregabalin75mg+methylcobalamine750mcg at night by prescription of your family doctor.

Lipitor causes generalized muscle fatigue or pain, not in thigh only.

Hi,I have a unusual issue that causes muscle fatigue, general fatigue, and slightly elevated blood pressure. I have been to the E.R. once, and they checked my blood, but said everything came back perfect . I know the doctor said something about checking for sodium potassium and thyroid stuff. I don t know what else though. I ve had this issue for about 3 months now, and it started simply with slight weakness in my upper legs, then as the the day would progress, it would move into calfs, neck and shoulders, etc. Now, anytime I try and walk up stairs,my legs burn, I have out of breath, and it s just very uncomfortable.

I have difficulty urinating (I still retain a lot of urine), chronic constipation, episodes of blood in the stools, hemmorhoids, occasional bouts of muscle fatigue, iron deficiency anemia. I had cancer of the kidney 11 years ago and had one of the kidneys removed. I am gettting a colonoscopy tomorrow and having the hemmorhoids removed. Do you think this is going to solve my problems? I am concerned about having either colon or prostate cancer or both. I am 57 years old.

I have spasms in the flexor tendons of my feet, only at night. They wake me up and are very painful. Walking stops the contractions. What may be the cause?

Hi, I have extreme bloating, in the morning, when i dont eat, and obviously ten times worse when i eat anything. so much that i can barely eat. My urine is very dark and strong smelling, I drink only water, and about 2-4 litres a day. I am unable to lose weight and i weigh about 12kgs above my normal weight. I go to the gym 5 days a week, walk home from work 4 nights a week (7km). I am at my wits end trying to figure out whats wrong with me. When i eat carbohydrates i gain even more weight, its as if im insulin resistant. So i stay away from heavy carb foods, but now im finding im quite depressed and down unless i eat a bit of sugar. Then im back to the happy bubbly person i used to be. I have extremely bad breath even though i have great oral hygene. I have muscle fatigue, a sore neck all the time, and very bad circulation. If im working out on a machine my feet and legs go dead, the same if im chilling out and have my legs resting high against something, i get bad pins and needles first, almost instantly, then they go completely dead. I have a horrible spotty rash aswell around my mouth and nose. Any answers are greatly appreciated, thanks.
