I have a throbing pain in my right thigh. I does not hurt if I'm standing but when I lay down or sit down. Also the same pain in my right upper arm. Should I be concerned?

Your pain could be due to a number of problems.
Pain in Unilateral leg & Upper arm, - could be due to either vascular or neurologic causes. You need a physical examination to rule this out.

Dull pain, which is reproducible by pressure on affected site, which is NOTassociated with redness or loss of function & which does not affect sleep is mostly benign and musculoskeletal pain.

Try OTC painkillers like paracetamol OR disprin - in case of musculoskeletal pain.

Hope this helps.
