The pain occurs in the outer, upper side of my left thigh (close to the hips). This might be a bad way describe it, but it feels like back pain, but on the leg. Some times it's throbbing, something like what you feel in your head when you got migraine. It hurts when I move it, even when I lift it a little bit or when I walk. I can still use it though.
However, if I rest it for a few hours, or after I wake up from sleep, the pain is completely gone, but after around 10 minutes of walking, it comes back on. It really hurts when I move it after I stand up in one position for a long time, especially if I put my weight on the left leg.
Sorry for the long message,
Please help me if anyone knows what's going on, or know how to cure this.
The first logical thing I could tell you to do is go see a Chiropractor and have an xray done. You could have one leg shorter than the other like me. It can cause back pain. If you have a length discrepancy, then you will need to wear a heel lift. While you are there, it wouldn't hurt to get about 6 adjustments. 3 a week for two weeks. If you still hurt after that then an MRI should be done to check for ruptured discs or degenerative disc disease. Let me know what you find out. I have lots of experience with back pain and I am now pain free without having to go through surgery. Feel free to private message me if you have any questions. In the mean time, put some ice on your low back and maybe alternate with heat to help with any muscle spasams you may have. Do not apply heat longer than 15 or 20 minutes..It could make nerve pain worse..Good luck!!
I have one leg shorter than the other and it didnt bother me until I was in my 20's. It will hurt sooner or later. Even if that wasnt the case, chiropractic care should help if you have a pinched nerve. Degenerative Disc Disease is part of the normal aging process. The only reason why I got it eary is because of my genes. I have a family history of back issues. Have you done any heavy lifting or twisting? Either way, if it continues, I would see a Chiropractor before I see anyone else. Do try putting ice on the low back and that will give you temporary relief and take something for inflammation if you are able to.
good news and bad news... the bad news is I got a back pain in my upper left back. it's probably because I had to lift heavy things when my left leg is still in pain, so my body was unbalanced, and that gave me the back pain.
Good news is, today my leg pain is completely gone. I don't know what happened, but it's not there anymore. Well I hope it doesn't come back....
