pain in upper leg/thigh

Neuropathy has effected my feet for 16 years and my hands for 4. i have started having quick sharp pains in my upper legs, just above my knees. I wonder if its due to he neuropathy. Does anyone else experience pain above the knees?

Re: pain in upper leg/thigh


I have peripheral Neuropathy and at times will get a sharp pain in my thigh and other times it will just be an annoying ache.

I don't know how this helps you but I just wanted to let you know that you aren't alone I guess.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Re: pain in upper leg/thigh

Hi Sanom,
Ive had joint pain for years and years and I have a hunch I know what youre talking about. Theres a pretty complex web of tendons right above your knee that keep your muscles in line and connect to all the bones and joint material around the kneecap.
First thing I would ask would be about your inflammatory response, not only to injury, but other health issues (inflammation can increase due to a bajillion reasons. Mine they think, is autoimmune)
Try a good epsom salt bath and increase your magnesium content- lots of RAW almonds. not roasted. not salted. raw.
and wear good shoes:-)
