    pain during outbreak??
    strugsingmom1 posted:
    I don't know how it is for men by any means. For women, when having an outbreak can different parts of your body be affected? My last outbreak my thigh was hurting just like where my outbreak was. It was the same kind of pain. I've noticed that it's happened before and I did know if there's a link and something that is common? I don't really know how to explain this so I hope that this came out pretty clear to understand what I'm asking.

    Thigh Pain is a common issue with some people so from that point you are not alone. It is one of those rare thinkgs that does not happen to everyone. Are you on suppressive thearpy? If not then I recommend that you consider it. Get Terr warrens book and it may have something in there about it. God Bless you.
