Leg Pain
updated: Dec 21, 2013, 5:00 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

I was curious if anyone has ever experienced a condition in dealing with. I went hiking and did some stadium stairs the following day and probably over did it. I've had pain just below the Greater Trochanter towards the back on the right leg. I've been told it's the Vastis Lateralis but i'm not sure. Going on 2 months now. Any feedback would be great.

You could, if interested, select the term, right click and then click on "search google," if that's a default on your computer. OP should do so too!

OP, that's the name of a thigh muscle. Talk more to whoever diagnosed you, and to a PT.

Thanks for the laugh 288. (I thought this condition was the name of a Slavik con man).

I thought the Vastus Lateralis was a muscle in the thigh, part of the quads. Whats the problem with it?

I thought the Vastus Lateralis was an ancient Roman administrator (who got credit for doing all the leg work).

No, I don't know anything about Vastus Lateralis, but I did know Vitas Gerulaitis.....

@302: Not to be confused with Gasseus Flatus, who was known to be a real stinker.

To the OP: I hope your condition gets better soon. Since it's been two months that you've had this problem, I really would see a doctor if I were you, if for no other reason than to find out exactly what it is.

See a physical therapist. Dave Dallmeyer 681-1004. Can fix you right up.

If it has been 2 months it sounds like a tear not just a strain or sprain,

I know a chiropractor who has an awesome machine that can help you. Call around.

LOL... this thread proves that oblique and hard to understand (english plainspeak is such a rarity these days) questions get the most sarcastic (and/or snarky) comments. I, for 1, appreciate the giggles they invite.

When I have leg/hip pain that won't go away, I find a combination of deep tissue massage, acupuncture and no working out for a week (walking and yoga is 'allowed'). I've found it will break the chain of pain every time.

If it was just the muscle you should have seen improvement by now (unless you have never rested it like you were supposed to). Could be bursitis (steroid shot will help that), but most likely you did damage to a tendon.

I would go see an orthopedic doctor. An MRI is the only way to definitively diagnose a tendon problem in this area.
