: : I've had a problem with my left thigh going numb on me, then I have a burning, stabbing pain that radiates down to my knee. I've been told that it's possible my sciatic nerve was pinched during recent surgery (unrelated to that). I am in constant pain, especially when I'm trying to sleep! I'm on Nuerontin, which was originally prescrribed for severe headaches, but have been told it will work on this, Well, so far, it hasn't. I am at my wit's end with this. I went into surgery fine, and now I have to deal with this complication. If you have any more advice, please email me!
: : 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.
