A couple of weeks ago I started having pains in my right thigh. But it is painful only after having sat awhile. After standing a while, the pain goes away.

I had a doctor's appointment scheduled for the week after the pain started. He scheduled an MRI, which I had done this morning (It was like being buried alive for an hour, but I endured it without freaking out).

I did Google my symptoms, pain in thigh after sitting a while. The result all pointed to "multiple myeloma," but the doctor I saw, my oncologist, says I am still cancer-free, as shown by scans from a few days earlier.

Anybody else had this symptom, pain in leg after sitting awhile? If so, what caused it, and what was the cure?

Google used to be my friend; just not this time.

Could be deep-vein thrombosis (DVT). It happens mostly to older people that sit for extended periods of time, and to people that often travel by air for extended periods. Blood pools into the legs and flow slows down due to the leg muscles being too relaxed.

That's why it's good to 'stretch your legs' once an hour when seated for long periods (desk work, road trips, air travel, etc.).

Have you received the results of the MRI?

Thanks, Peegoo. They told me I would hear back Monday.

I had wondered if it wasn't deep vein thrombosis myself.

I appreciate it, Peegoo.

Only symptom I had of DVT was the leg pain itself. No swelling or raised veins and no shortness of breath. No bloody coughing or chest pain. No accelerated pulse rate or dizziness.

I'm surprised they didn't give you a quick ultrasound right in the office. Leg pain often indicates clotting but usually in the calf.

If the pains are lasting longer a little longer time before going away since you first noticed it, my guess is sciatica. But that's based on my own experience.
I've had a couple of problems over the years with it...a dull throbbing pain, feels almost like a torn muscle, punctuated with a sudden sharp quick pain. If it is sciatica, the fact that it's going away with movement is a very good sign. Physical Therapy should take care of it. If the pain starts and doesn't go away, that's a different matter. I've had two surgeries for it.

My boss had it. I cannot remember if it was thigh or calf pain, left side. Happened a couple of days after two 14-hour drives. Blot clot. The doc put him on thinners for awhile and advised no prolonged travel, and it worked itself out.

From what I read in my old Runner's Handbooks, and as mentioned above, sciatica is another strong possibility.

Any numbness or tingling in the toes?

Daveg, it's looking like sciatica. I always thought sciatica was back pain. But looking at sciatica, symptoms, that is what I think I might have.

Hammond, my oncologist examined my ankles, and chest, and I suppose what he saw or didn't see ruled out the need for an ultrasound. Or at least I hope so.

Peegoo, no numbness or tingling in the toes.

Y'all are better than Google. The FDP is great! FDPers are great.

I started taking a new medicine once and developed leg pain, oddly, in only one leg. I could only handle a couple of days of it. Stopped the drug -- pain subsided.

Statins gave me leg pains.

I recently went through a sciatica experience.

Years ago -- contributing factor: wallet in back pocket

Partial cure: got a front pocket wallet

So, 009, was the wallet on the same side as the leg that was hurting, or the opposite side? I keep my wallet in my left back pocket, and it's my right thigh that has the pain.

And, Leftee, I have taken Statins for nearly 20 years. Just started having the pains a couple of weeks ago.

HenryJ, it could be a number of things. You won't be able get a diagnosis without an examination and/or MRI results, so anything said here is speculation, don't let it stop you getting a diagnosis from a doc. And it's worth remembering that sciatica isn't a diagnosis, it's only a description of symptoms, which can have a number of different causes.

i AM NOT A doctor. I have had several MRIs and my experience has been that the time spent in the actual cave of doom was a few minutes. Check-in and other matters maybe, but I'm surprised to see that they didn't just keep you there until they had their test result. I've had a DVT and they admitted me for the night while pumping me with blood thinner (heparin) When they were done with me they sent me home with a bottle of warfarin/coumadin and told me I would be on it for the duration.

Henry - My pain was on the same side as my wallet; direct pressure. But when I looked this stuff up, the primary cause of back pain (and by extension, possibly, leg pain...?) was the wallet physically tilting the pelvis and thereby throwing back alignment off.

Back and leg pain and their causes vary, not only between individuals, but can vary in location and intensity with the same person. Degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, displaced vertebrae, etc. — all squirrelly stuff.

Three times a week for the past 22 years I get down on my bedroom floor and do a variety of stretching and strengthening exercises. If I skip more than a couple of weeks, things start to hurt. If I hurt my back suddenly, I’ll do some of those exercises to make sure things are/get back into alignment; gentle, slow stretching and flexing makes things feel better, even if it’s a little painful doing so.

Well, you’ll figure it out, You may need some x-rays and/or an MRI... Good luck.
