Front of thigh sore upon waking
« on: June 20, 2014, 10:21:01 AM »
Any ideas what this could be?

I didn't do any sort of exercise yesterday or anything to strain my leg.  However, I woke up this morning and the front of my thigh is VERY sore.  It feels muscular to me because each time I move it or go up and down the stairs, it lets me know how sore it is.  It feels like I did lunges with that leg or something but I didn't.

What could this be?  You know I get very nervous with any sort of leg pain. I immediately start to think blood clot. 

As I'm sitting, it also aches and I do have a slight pain in my buttock on that same side. 

Just trying to figure out how I could have such pain in my leg when I've done nothing to it.

I would appreciate any ideas to help ease my mind.

First, stop and think of anything you may have done yesterday.  Maybe walk up some stairs, sitting a certain way.  Also, you may not feel tense, but your muscles still may be.  I often catch myself w/ tense shoulders, tense back, etc.  It's not unusual for me to be sore after hours of tension.

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack

Thanks, Doug.

I've been trying to think all morning and honestly, I haven't done anything out of the ordinary.  I have been sitting much more lately.  I know yesterday I really was sitting a lot.  Not sure if that would do it. 

It really hurts to try to raise up my leg when sitting or when I walk.  So strange.

Sitting and being tense can do it.  Maybe take some ibuprofen to see if that helps.

Thanks, I'll try that.

It's one of those things where I just know it's muscular, but my mind is running wild.

Thank you for responding so quickly. :)

Okay, I'm still baffled by this.

It's late afternoon here and my thigh is still SUPER sore.  I took an Aleve and it seems less sore to walk around on, however, it is so sore to touch.  The whole thigh muscle from the top of my knee to my torso is so sore to touch.  What the heck could have happened in my sleep?

I know for a fact I did NOTHING strenuous yesterday at all.  I just don't see how I could wake up with such a painful thigh.  It's as if I did lunges all day or something. 

Any thoughts?  I keep worrying about blood clots but yet it's definitely a muscular type of pain.  I don't know what to think but I can't stop worrying about it.  I guess because every time I move it screams at me. 

Anyone ever had this?

i get stuff like muscle pain when I can find no reason sometimes too.   Just because an oddity occurs in the body doesn't mean there is something sinister behind it.

It's still sore today but a little better.  It really hurts when I go up and down the stairs or bend it.  When I push on it, it's sore, too, just like a sore muscle.

On that same side, I feel achiness in my butt and lower back when I sit.  Plus, periodic pain in my lower abdomen on that side, too. 

I'm trying not to think about it.   Key word "trying". :)

I appreciate you asking.   Thank you.
