Suggest treatment for pain in the thigh

I have pain in my left thigh - mostly on the outside - when I walk, not when I stand or sit. I also have some pain in the joint to the large toe of my left foot \. It is a little red and a little swollen. My foot tingles. I also have some peripheral neuropathy in the soles of my feet. The pain in my thigh is the most bothersome. (I am 79-year old female, until now in good health)

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, what the pain condition being described here could be due to sciatica it is advisable to confirm the condition and for that you will have to get done the MRI, try to maintain the good posture till then Tab Diclofenac 50 mg once in day can be used hope this information helps.
