: Has anyone had burning in the backs of their thighs? I had a "frozen shoulder" in October of 1999, which has a long recuperation period. In March of 2000 the backs of my upper thighs began burning - nothing works to get rid of it. My neuro put be on Neurontin (400 3x day), but so far no luck (I've been on it about a week). I have read that it works for this type of pain, but maybe I need to increase the dose. I have had every type of test imaginable, from shoulder MRI, left arm MRI, neck MRI, head MRI, and all were normal. All blood work was normal - no lupus or anything like that. If anyone had had this type of pain, I'd like to hear from you.
I can sympatize with you very much. I have at times severe burning pain in my thighs but more on the inner thigh. I also have right shoulder pain along with some other symptoms. I also have had many exams, scans and blood work with more to go.
I have a medical backround and have access to many medical books and have researched the net. Our problem can be of a neuro. origin, circuitory or possibly a disorder(not life threating)called fibromyalgia. If you have not already had a chest x-ray I would sugest it just as a precaution. Some
respitory problems can also cause shoulder pain and leg muscle pain. As far as meds. go I have had
more luck using a mild traqulizer for pain as it can quiet nerves than anything else. I still have a few more tests to go yet and am hoping for some good news. I wish you pain free days. I know it can be difficult. I have been dealing with this problem with not answers since Jan. of last year!
Please update me if you have any info. that may help.
