    Default Upper left leg aching/pain ?

    It's hard trying to describe it, but it seems to be getting worse. It's an area in my upper left leg, more inner. A continuous ache. It always starts at first if I am sitting in a chair like a straight chair or if I am sewing.

    My right let never has this pain. I even had this pain when sitting in a chair doing computer work when I was still working at school back in 2010. So this is not new, but for the past week it is getting worse and for a longer duration.

    I Have worried that it could be a blood clot, but then as I said, it is not new.

    Anyone, have any ideas?

    Hi there,

    Anything that has been around that long needs to be looked into. If it begins to swell, turn red at the site or get hot you should go to the ER right away. Other then that I would suggest making an appointment with the doctor just to be on the safe side.

    A study was done a while back that showed something like 78% of Lupus patients didnt tell their docs everything that was going on but 85% of docs believed they did. We need to correct that.

    Keep us posted!
