Thigh pain
momoftycam posted:
About a year ago, I tore my adductor muscle in my right leg. I was sent to physical therapy, where they used a rolling pin object to break up the scar tissue that had formed. From the first time they "rolled" my leg, it felt like tiny pieces of glass were under my skin and the pain was almost intolerable. I have a high pain tolerance and at times, felt like I was about to lose my mind. They were shocked that I complained so much about the pain. My insurance only covered a set number of pt appointments, so I eventually stopped going, and began my normal activity again. I thought this was all related to the accident, however, I now notice that both of my thighs are tender to the touch, and if I press my fingers on them, I feel the "glass under the skin" sensation. No other part of my leg or arms hurt like this, so I'm curious what it could be. I'm not obese, but I could stand to lose some weight in my thighs, so I'm curious, could this pain be something related to weight gain, or is something else going on?
