So I have been having leg pains since April, so around 6 months now. I believe it was caused by not stretching properly before exercising, but thats unclear. Whenever I sit down or stand still for more than 20 minutes, I begin to have a tightening sensation in my left leg which I can only compare to a cramp. Interestingly, I don't have any pain when I lie down completely flat. The pain/ache is underneath my leg and is mostly located above and below my knee, the pain seems to stem from my upper thigh. I went to see my physiotherapist for an assessment, she said that the pain was due to me growing a lot in a short amount of time, which is true; I recently underwent treatment for crohns disease which meant I started growing much faster. She gave me two stretches to repeat 2 times, holding for 30 seconds, 4 times a day, for 6 weeks. It has been 16 weeks now and I am still suffering from the same pain and symptoms. Has anyone experienced anything similar and maybe have any solutions they found? I am studying at college, so leg pains when sitting down is incredibly inconvenient for me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
For context, I am a 17 year old male.
The two stretches my physiotherapist recommended:
