Constant, excriciating pain. Whether I'm walking, standing or laying down. Feels as though someone is sticking a white hot poker into my outside thigh. Has anyone ever experienced this? If so, what did they tell you it was. My doc is being very conservative. Put me on anti-inflamatory meds for 5 days. Took the pain down a notch but still extremely painful. Especially at night and in the morning. He is not referring me to a orthopedic doc just yet. But has prescibed vicadin at night for the next 10 days. I just don't know if this is going to help me during the daytime hours. He only wants me to take it at night. I really need to hear from anyone who has a similar problem. Thanks in advance for your answers.
