Hallo. For almost a year now, I have had what I can only call a nagging aching pain (almost like toothache in the leg!) in my right calf, intermittently. At the same time, almost always I get the same pain in my inner thigh (and sometimes on my shin, for some reason which makes no sense). Now, I did go down with sciatica several years ago in that same leg, but that was what I understood to be 'textbook' sciatica (ie coming down from my buttock, and down my leg - it was extremely painful and I was bedridden for a couple of days), so I am not sure if what I have now is another form of sciatica. It occurs sometimes when walking and sometimes at rest, so no real pattern. My GP ordered a D-dimer test on it for DVT, but apparently there was not a positive result for DVT. She said that it must be a muscle pain, but it really doesn't feel like a muscle ache, it is very different, so am reluctant to go back. I am a bit worried about some sort of vascular disorder but I know my GP doesn't go in much for 'internet diagnosis', but I think that other people's experiences can be very useful - any ideas, please? Thank you
