Do you have pain here?

Postby tintagel » Thu Mar 19, 2015 10:16 am

HI all,
Just wondering, if any of you have intense pain at the back of your legs, right at the top where your legs join up to your buttocks? Kind of in the crease. Mine is so painful I cant bear to even sit on a soft seat and it makes driving agony. My GP thinks its hamstring issues, but it's not, because it only happens when having a flare. Why don't they listen to us...Urgh!!
Thankyou. X

I have pain on the front of my thighs x
I am a fibro fighter not a fibro sufferer. I will keep fighting from the minute I get up til the minute I go to bed.

I suffer from sciatica, in both legs now used to be just the right one, it feels like someone is tightening the nerves running from the buttock to the backs of the knees, when it is really painful it is hard to sit down so I lie down instead, just one more of the issues of fibromyalgia unfortunately :-(

Hi there, I am troubled with this type of pain, nothing seemed to relieve the pain and it drove me demented. My specialist organised for a physiotherapist to see me and she taught me a way of releasing the sciatic nerve ... lying flat on your back on your bed ... bring your knees up towards you with your feet flat on the bed ... then with your heel still on the bed .. raise your foot up as far as possible pointing your toes towards the ceiling (as far as you can!) this is supposed to release the sciatic nerve.

I must say sometimes the above worked, other times I couldn't even lay down to attempt this exercise as the pain was so bad ... on these occasions I went and sat in a bath with Epson salts (using my chair lift). That's why my family call me the woodland mermaid as we live in the wood and I am always in the bath!

I have recently bought a bottle of Magnesium Oil Original Spray from Holland and Barrett the brand name is Better You It claims it aids energy production and normalised muscle function. It is a super saturated pure mineral spray with faster tissue absorption.

I use the magnesium spray after every bath I take (usually two a day sometimes more as pain levels dictate). The spray can cause a tingling sensation on first usage but the manufacturers say this will pass as mineral levels increase. It can be diluted with mineral water.

I know only too well the hell of the pain your going through, I do hope the above brings some relief. I think the main thing I found is to keep warm.
