    Pain In Leg:0

    Hello
    Everyone-
    Well I was advised by my GYN over a year ago I had HSV:( I don't talk about it etc. Yes, I take oral med, which is fine. Lately, since end of April I've been having back pain. I thought I just may have pulled a muscle or something (no big deal). We are now in July almost August and for the last month I've had the most irritating/nawing pain in my (right leg). It's difficult to sleep, because there is pain in my back, and leg (only the right one). I feel like my leg or something is burning inside my leg (more specifically) in the thigh area. I can't sit for long periods of time. While at work I just have to stand up! I squeeze my leg sometimes so the irritating pain can stop! There are times it's sensitive to the touch; it's like the nerves are ontop of my thigh.

    If my pant touch my thigh area it hurts. I've started back a few weeks ago taking my meds. There has been on sexual activity in over a year. Has anyone else experienced this type of pain? Any suggestions would be great!

    Thank You...

    Thigh pain. Some people with herpes do get thigh pain as part of their herpes symptoms. I do know this happens but I would recommend that you search above for something like "Herpes thigh pain" or try some different combinations. I do know that this does happen and I think there should be some other posts that address this issue.

    You sain in your post "on sexual" did you mean "no sexual" I think that makes more sense


    God Bless you as you move on with your life.

    I searched "Herpes thigh pain" and got over 200 results. If that does not give you what you are looking for then cut back to just search "thigh pain" and it may give you a better search of just those posts that relate to Thigh pain and most of them should be about herpes thigh pain.

    Hope that helps
