Customer Question

Severe Cramp in Inner and back of thigh moving down to Calf

This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are having such bad cramps in your inner and back thigh moving down

you should go to the A&E or urgent care center at a local hosptial to see a doctor there

your severe muscle cramp could be due to dehydration or deficiencies of potassium or magnesium or calcium in your blood system.

you need blood testing to check these levels to see if they are low

your cramps could also be due to pinched nerves in your lower back as well which can be seen on MRI scan.

you might need prescription muscle relaxors such as ativan or lorazepam or xanax to help decrease the muscle cramps in the short term to help your pain

but these are prescription medications and you need a doctor to assess your leg carmps and thigh cramps

in rare cases blood clots or DVT or deep venous thrombosis can cause severe pain and cramps in your thigh and calf and also cause swelling of one leg

so it is important that you see a doctor right away and get an ultrasound of your leg

do you have an A&E department or emergency room close to you?
