Stretch marks and pain

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have stretch marks at the top of my hamstring by my butt. They have been there many years.

I used to weight train when young so they happened because of that.

I have terrible burning pain in that area for at least 14 years. I am now 52.

I have seen a few docs and none have been able to help me.

I have tried various creams and was put on Pregabalin for a time. Nothing has helped.

I have taken some pics and will post if I can find out how to.

Sitting down is very very uncomfortable indeed. I hate sitting.

I truly think it has something to do with the stretch marks. I do have some redness there too. Could it be ingrown hairs?
