I recently got thigh pain (upper part). My ortho and rheummie said it's coming from my back. I had a facet injection (SI joint) area done (depomedrol) and this helped the light ache I had in my back, but didn't touch the burning, shooting pains in the thigh. It's been 3 days - no success. Then I thought, could this be fibro? I have the myofascial knots that are tender to touch in both thighs, but the right one is what is hurting now. I don't do well with pain pills or even have any, so it's been Tylenol, but this doesn't do much. Or, could this be nerve pain? Just wondering if anyone else has had this and what they did to help with the ache?
