Q: What's causing upper thigh pain at night?

I have been experiencing pain - sometimes shooting, mostly aching - in my upper right thigh. Blood clots have been ruled out. I also have cramps occasionally in my right calf muscle. Any ideas what is causing this?

What could be causing pain so severe in my thighs when I lay on my side that I can't even sleep?

I have had very simular pains in my left leg first and then my right and in my back and thigh, it seems to move around but i cannot sleep at night because of the pain, the first diagnosis was Shingles but i didn't have a rash until 3 weeks later and even then it was tiny and on my foot, it lasted 3 months instead of the 6 weeks i was first told, i have had this 3 times now but have also been told that it may not be shingles, off to the the docs tonight (again) and will update
