Hi joed

I am so genuinely sorry to read that you are still suffering and struggling with this thigh pain, and I sincerely hope that you can find something that will help with the pan.

It is a tough choice whether or not to continue with investigations, as I am sure you must have had some very unpleasant tests and explorations undertaken in your search for an answer. Maybe since you are asking the question that you know yourself that it is time to stop searching for a cause? I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck. Please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Me too - treatment so far is physio 6 times and 2 injections. Hasnt worked. Painkillers co-codamol dont work, been taking them for too long. Have added oromorph and that doesnt work either. Surely there must be some kind of relief for this painful condition?

I get this as well, wakes me every night. I've just ordered a snoozle to see if it will help me turn over so I'm not laying in the same position for too long.

I get pain that seems to start at the hip and then travel down my leg into my knee, calf and ankle.

Ifind that Volterol helps along with a pillow between my legs supporting my leg so as to keep my hip in place. :)

It's difficult to tell sometimes isn't it. I sometimes wonder if it is muscle pain I am suffering from, is it perhaps just because I don't get the exercise I used to, so when I do do any activity perhaps it's not surprising my muscles are aching. A bit chicken and egg sometimes. :O

I walk twice a day with my wee dog. That doesnt help either....maybe it would be a lot more painful if I didnt walk at all....

Could well be. Getting that balance between enough and too much is really difficult isn't it.

So true.....I used to force myself to walk but dont anymore. Why put oneself through suffering even more. I know I must get out though and try my hardest to do it. Not easy when having a flare up. i dont have fibromyalgia, mine is caused by hip bursitis and low back pain which I have had for years and years....I just wish there was a painkiller that did the job!
