I am hoping someone can help me out here. For about 2 weeks I've experienced intermittent shooting pain in my right mid-femur bone, not bad pain, just twinges really, but it does make me stop in my tracks for a moment. Well, this morning, it's got me limping a bit and even while sitting, standing, going up or down stairs, whatever, it's shooting hard pain - VERY painful, makes me gasp it's so painful. And it is only in that one area. It does NOT feel muscular. It feels like it's IN the bone. Of course I called my DR but they are closing half day and can't squeeze me in and their computers are down so they couldn't even schedule me for another day. Any ideas? I'm freaking out a little and thinking that if it continues I may end up in the ER, which I DON'T want to do on Thanksgiving weekend!
