My left leg hurts and the pain starts at my thigh and goes down to my knee. What could be the reason for this?

My left leg hurts and I have no idea why. I haven t injured it, it just hurts. The pain starts at my thigh and goes down to my knee . My right leg feels fine, though. I heard that in some diabetic cases, one or both legs are usually amputated! Can someone describe the symptoms of diabetes so I ll know what to look out for? I m 19 years old and I m afraid that I might have ignored or overlooked some vital symptoms!

The effects of having a consistent high blood glucose level over normal levels can be devastating on the body which can cause complications such as heart disease and stroke, blindness, hypertension, diabetic neuropathy, nerve damage, depression, complications with feet, kidney disease and limb amputation. Diabetes has so many deadly compilations, if you take care of yourself you could live a long and good life. First get a test done to see if you reallly are a diabetic or not.
