  • Painful upper thighs?

    Starting Sunday, my upper thighs near my bladder are painful and burning. Is this part of the IC? Vulvodynia? PFD? I'm so new to everything I'm not sure what is actually going on with me. I have a call into the Urologist, waiting for a reply.

    I think it could be all of the above. Its best to get checked out to see if its an infection. I get thigh pain as you described during flares. A warm bath or a heating pad can be soothing.

      My doctor told me it was a side effect of IC! Hope that helps!

        What helps?

        Does anything help with this? Right now I'm hurting very much. I see the Urologist tomorrow, I'd love to go armed with information.

          It can be referred pain from the IC. The pain from IC can radiate to the lower back, thighs, and some people have even mentioned pain in the big toe. It's such a tangle of nerves in that area that the pain can be felt in many odd places.

          I'd talk to your doctor as soon as you can and ask him what he suggests for this. You can take tylenol safely (usually) with IC. Some people can tolerate ibuprofen, and some people find that it makes their bladder pain worse.

          My best suggestion is a hot bath with epsom salts. Soak as long as you can..also, a heating pad can do wonders!

          04/17/09 Crohn's disease almost killed me with a combo of extreme constipation from pain medications. My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.

            Here's what always helps me:

            I usually use a heating pad or warm cloth on my thighs then when I feel somewhat better, I grab a bottle of lotion and massage it in. This will help get the blood circulating better and hopefully will help lessen the pain.
