I've had a sore aching in my left thigh and buttocks mainly, and in my left ankle. It doesn't stop me walking or moving, but it has the same sensation if you had run or exercised, but I don't as I am very inactive and only walk my dogs, that is the only exercise I get.
I had a viral infection, that started at Christmas, and is only now starting to fade away, and I had blood tests that came back as normal. I'm 30 years old, slightly overweight, very inactive lifestyle, hypothyroid (in normal range), and I have PCOS as well (not on any pills for it). my periods are regular since starting my Eltroxin 50mg medication.
I'm a very anxious person, suffer with health anxiety, and depression, so this is starting to freak me out. Of course, I did the worst thing possible - looked on Google, only answers I got were Blood clotting, cancers and tumors. And I have major fears about all 3 of those. So now I'm worse again.
I seen my doctor yesterday about it, and she gave me a physical examination on my leg, and asked me about numbness, pain, bowel problems. Non of which I have, she said it might be it band syndrome, but I looked online and that says about the knee and swelling - both of which I don't have, and my knee isn't the problem.
The problem is the aching in my thigh, and my buttocks, sometimes a little up from my buttocks, but around that left side. I'm really frightened at the moment, I can't sleep and I'm crying, I'm frightened about blood clots, pulmonary embolisms, spinal tumors, ovarian cancer and cancers. I googled and these are some of the things that came up and now my brain is spinning with fear and has debilitated me with panic that its something like these things.
What is it? I've had it a few days, is it something serious like those things? I'm so scared!!
