Im outside the country. Yes there is a doctor that i believe that checks this but finding it is hard. I cant speak the language so because of that its harder. Also some of these doctors move a bit so its hard to find them and some i read are not good. There are doctors where im located but very few specialists thats the issue.



I have used honey on it. Last time i had an injury and i used ice and then i found out you are not suppose to ice it. I did not use any pain cream.



The thing is earlier when i got up, i didn't notice the pain much at all. When i was lifting my leg up, i didn't notice much pain. But then when i push my feet towards like kicking so to speak then i felt the pain. Now i feel the pain again when i lift my legs up. But the pain does not seem as bad as it was few days ago when im moving my leg up now.

Well i usually am on the computer all the time and sitting. I been doing that for a very long time. Well i wasn't sure if moving the muscles and joints is a good idea or not and risk injuring it. Thus im not doing much walking and staying inside. And avoiding having to walk up or down stairs.



You have not been through what i been through. Few years ago my vision in one of my eyes was entirely blurred, i could not see anything on it. It just happened suddenly. i went to the eye doctor next day... this was when i was in another country and i had to look for an eye doctor online. This was back in Canada by the way where their health care is different from the US so i had to call lot of places to find an eye doctor and see how soon i could see an eye doctor since im paying with cash because im not canadian. I think if you are canadian, you might even have to wait for an appointment so i had to check online since i could not get an appointment that day. I don't remember if i set up an appointment that night or early the next morning but i went the next day.



You ever had no vision in one of your eyes? And that is not even close to one of the worst things I ever had happened that scared me that much because that lasted one day. I guarantee if that happened to you, you would freak out more than me.

I do that quite a lot with the higher thigh strain, and the pain and weakness is gone the next day.


I don't run at all. I could understand that happening with what you described.


But does any of those examples i listed earlier could potentionally cause something like this?

The thing is i also did not recall when i first noticed it. Im pretty certain it was when i got up in the morning. If it is not that, it probably was when i tried to lift my leg to walk over something. Again, I did not injure myself or anything that caused this. If it was, then i know the culprit.

I'd also sit down when changing my pants or underwear. No pain then, right?

If it were just one leg I'd be thinking possible blood clot. Since it is both, it is probably a nerve/compression-type issue that you can address with stretching, standing, weight training - physical therapy, basically. If it doesn't get better within a few days get into the doctor though so you can start figuring out what to do.

My daughter had bilateral thigh pain after a much larger person put their weight on her back doing a band stunt. She did not have back pain and it was about a week or possibly more before the leg pain set in. Her worst issue was going up stairs, but no pain just walking, standing or laying down. It went away on its own (under a doctor's supervision) with rest and anti-inflammatories.

You can get a pinched nerve from sitting too long. If you get up from sitting and move around, you'll feel sensation returning to your legs.

Okay so few days ago, the pain first subsided but then if i move the legs far, there was pain. So it was still there Now there is no more of that leg pain anymore when im lifting my legs at all.


So does anyone know what is the exact name of this then? I had this for a bit over a week. Now it doesn't seem like i have this issue at the moment. Of course it can come back.


The strange thing is it was both legs with this issue.
