I start getting a cramp in my thigh on the outside aspect

Customer Question

I've started having a problem at night while sleeping. I stir enough to roll over or change positions and I start getting a "cramp" in my thigh on the outside aspect. I question the term cramp as it isn't a typical muscular cramp. It feels as though the muscles in my thigh are being torn apart. Then I have this burning sensation in the thigh for several days. At times it feels as though the thigh is warm to the touch.
