What do soreness and numbness around the femur bone indicate?

I have had two heart attacks in the last 11 years with bypass surgery 11 yrs ago and 6 months ago they were blocked so the cardiologist reamed them out and put a stent in one. Following both procedures, I have had intense pain down my Rt. leg. Most recently it s worse then the first time. The Dr. gave me Gabapatin 100mg 3X day, put it is not helping. The pains are located in the middle and in my Femur bone. Sharp stabbing pains. They are sporadic but in between these shocking pains, the muscle is sore to the touch with a slight numbness. It seems to be getting worse. It s been almost 6 months since the procedure with my heart. I m 74 yrs old and a Female.

Consult a neurologist and rule out conditions like sciatica, which can cause similar symptoms.

Hello, I recently had arthroscopic surgery on my right shoulder (AC Joint and small tear in rotator cuff). Was recovering and getting ready to go back to work when I fell and cracked 2 bones in my ankle. My arm started getting really sore in the forearm area and it s very painful to stretch my arm out to the side and when the pain does shoot down my arm, I have numbness and tingling in my elbow and fingers. Do you think I did damage or could it be something else?
