    Pain from osteoarthritis? Not sure...
    Jillrdh posted:
    I have pain in the left leg, along the shin bone, not the knee, but also on top of and to the outside of the thigh. The pain wraps around the left hip, buttox, and stops at or near the "butt crack". It is extreme, especially when I put weight on it, or stand. Even with my feet apart and under my shoulders, back straight, I can barely stand for more than a few minutes. I have not had any trauma. I am 55 yrs, 10 months; 5'4" and 223 lbs. I believe my weight has fought up with me. I have advanced degenerative osteo arthritis treated by GP w NSAIDS, and hypothyroidism for 25+ years. I take .150 synthroid. Can you offer any suggestions or Help--I am in a lot of paiN
