Leg sensations

Recommended Posts

I get nerve sensations behind my left thigh about midway down the thigh and right above the kneecap (still back of thigh). For me, an outbreak rarely follows so I believe it can be prodromes, but I also feel it can be just damage to the nerves from HSV.

I dont think those twitches are shedding cause I get them everyday. I talked abt this with my doc at PP and she said it doesnt sound like prodromes, it's most likely the nerve damage.


When I wake up, there is nothing but when I sit 2+ hours (putting pressure at my original ob site) my right buttock starts to ache then my right leg starts to twitch. I dont get outbreaks after those sensations and twitches. My prodromes consist of headaches in the back of my head and itching down there. If it itches like a bug bite (ie when it itches sooo good and you dont wanna stop but your skin hurts) then I get an ob. Also, twitching and pain dont happen when I have an ob.


Try to keep track of your symptoms. After a while you're gonna be good at differentiating btw the nerve pain and prodromes.

I have tingling in glutes and thighs accompanied by back pain which is also brought on by sitting. I stand most of the day. At any rate, this is being looked at by ortho as piriformis syndrom as I weight train daily. Piriformis muscle has much smaller nerves which branch off sciatic.
