Upper Left Leg Bone Pain at Night-Rest
I have been experiencing upper left leg bone (from middle of thigh to hip) which comes and goes for about a year. It usually gets worse at night when lying down or sleeping and at times has woken me up. I had an xray and an mri and I was told there was nothing on either. As a child I had legg perthes disease of my left hip which kept me bed ridden for 3.5 years. I don`t believe that has anything to do with it but offer it as background. I am a 49 year old male who is now starting to get a little worried. Can you help?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. There is too little information to offer any help. I would suggest starting with a general orthopaedic surgeon.
