New Smyptom Inside Joint Top of Leg

I have a new symptom that started bothering about 6 weeks ago and don't know if anyone else has this problem... It is the joint at the top of my left leg on the inside... If I sit for to long, maybe 10 minutes, it starts hurting and I have to straighten it out or stand up. It will also make the back of the calf start hurting also...

My knee hurts which I did bring up to my pain doc who said that is part of fibro which has trigger points there however, you cannot get trigger point injections there as the trigger points are to small and the chance of hitting them are to small.

I have not told him about my leg joint hurting because I get tired of telling him every ache and pain.

I just wanted to know if anyone else has this type of pain. I don't have it in the other leg even though I have a lot of problems with the right hip.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jenn

Re: New Smyptom Inside Joint Top of Leg

Yup got that too. started having that about 2-3 months ago when all the symptoms started. My Rheumy told me on Monday that "well I get like that too if I have been sitting to long". Seems he didn't want to admit that it was a part of fibro. Never had it before so I know it is.

Thanks, after sitting to long, I don't think 10 minutes would be considered sitting to long but I guess everyone is different.

Just one lovely symptom after another... Can't wait for the next one

Have a pain free day, Jenn

Re: New Smyptom Inside Joint Top of Leg

It could be a labral tear. I have the same problem and if I sit too long I hobble around like an old lady. This is a common symptom of this condition...this is very common in athletes like soccer players and runners...and if not treated leads to arthritis and eventual hip replacement. Get it checked out....

Re: New Smyptom Inside Joint Top of Leg

I have that same pain. Once mine starts it travels into my left groin and aches like heck. They say its all fibro related.

I get up and walk around but that doesn't seem to help too much. Warm moist heat helps though.

Re: New Smyptom Inside Joint Top of Leg

Thanks to all who answered... I just haven't brought it up to my pain doc as he usually chalks it up to fibro and when I went to see my GP, I ended up with appointments with two other new docs so did not bring it to his attention.

Thanks again, Jenn

Sorry you are not feeling so well... I too am having major stomach issues still.. The pins and needles are part of it. Muscle spasms too.

I hope you start feeling better. I go to see my pain doc, therapist and psychiatrist tomorrow. I get to have my lovely upper GI and colonoscopy on Monday. Wish me luck.... for that and the lovely cleansing on Sunday and early Monday... Jenn.

Keep venting, its good for the soul... Only thing that bothers me about tomorrow is that I have to get the trigger point injections and then go see the therapist and shrink after that and the weather here is rainy.... Can't wait to go sit and wait for 2+ hours after the shots plus the drive to the other appointments

They are doing the endoscopy and colonoscopy on the same day and I have already had the colonoscopy before... When a doc did a colonoscopy before he made a sharp left when he should have taken a right, that woke me up, other than that, I don't remember a thing....

Re: New Smyptom Inside Joint Top of Leg

Hello to all my fellow fibromites.... Just got back from all my fav doctors... My first appt at 7:15 this morning with me not being a morning person, well hell, I am not anytime of the day person.... But anyway, I saw my pain doc first and finally mentioned the pain in the joint in the top of the inside of my leg... telling him that I hated to bring it up because I was sure it was another symptom..... He said no, it isn't and said it is a joint issue and started to say arthiritis and once again said its just joint pain. I asked him then about my underarm joint pain and he did another physical and said that it was joint pain also.... He then said let's lay down and we will start the trigger point injections.... What a way to start the day... then off to the therapist and then the psychiatrist.... What an exciting day....

And how are all of you doing this lovely day.... On top of all this, its raining here..... I wish dearly for summer.... but then some of my meds have an interaction where I cannot regulate my body temperature.... I am going for the sunshine as I wish to be cremated someday anyway I have to laugh, or else I will cry and laughing is much better medicine....

Hope all is well with you all. Jenn.
