Stiffness And Pain In The Thighs To The Spine And Waist If You Sit Too Long?
Hello, I am 17 years old. A year ago I experienced pain in the tailbone, when the scan turned out there was a slight fracture in the right thigh, after that I was given medicine and it got better. But lately I feel stiff and sore in my thighs if I sit too long and sometimes the pain reaches my spine and waist. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
A history of cracks in your thigh, most likely not related to your current complaint, because if the condition has lasted a year, the pain from the crack should not be felt now. Possible pain in your thigh can be caused by structural abnormalities, namely muscles, bones, nerves, joints, ligaments, or skin, namely:
Muscle pain, for example due to strenuous activity, excessive exercise
Nerve pinching in the thigh (meralgia paresthetica): characterized by burning, tingling, or numbness in the thigh
Nerve pain after herpes zoster infection: there is a history of previous herpes infection, the pain feels like burning
Bone disorders (infection or tumor)
History of injury (can affect muscles, bones, nerves, joints, ligaments, or skin)
Skin sores / blisters
To determine the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will conduct an examination of the complained area. If necessary, the doctor will refer you to an orthopedist for examinations related to joints, bones and muscles. If necessary, the orthopedist will conduct supporting examinations such as x-rays, CT scans, bone densitometry, MRI. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions.
Things you can do to improve and prevent worsening of your disease are:
Limit strenuous physical activity
Don't exercise too much
Do not massage / massage the painful area if the cause is unknown
Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours a day
Cold compress the area you are complaining about to reduce pain and swelling (if any)
You can take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
