Second opinion] I have a slight pulsing sensation on my inner thigh just above my knee. It is occasional feeling

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No swelling and it just occurs when sitting or laying in bed. Most of the time it doesn't happen.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am 80. I did fall on my right bottom 10 days ago. Two docs checked it out. Nothing broken, just sore on right side lower back. It is better. I take 5mgs prednisone and methotrexate once a week for vasculitis.

I think you have a disc in the spine or arthritis that is causing this

the pressure on the nerve is referred to the leg

it is commonly called "sciatica"

I'm sorry you are suffering with this

did you get xrays of your lower spine?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
