New feelings and experiences

molmol Posts: 46 Boards Initiate
During my school years I was severely malnourished and extremely skinny, now I’m on meds that have a side effect of weight gain. And I have gained so much weight, I’m healthy and happy, but I’ve noticed I keep getting a constant aching pain in my thighs. I don’t know if that’s just my skin stretching and my body adjusting, bad circulation or if somethings wrong, was wondering if anyone has experienced it and knows what it is??

    Hi @mol,

    I haven’t experienced this personally and don’t really know what it could be, it might be worth checking this one out with your GP. It might be a side effect of your medication.

    Hey @mol, you should have a look at the medication leaflet to see if that gives you any more information about side effects. If that doesn't help, you could consider discussing this with your GP - they'll be more than happy to help I'm sure.

    All the best.

    Hi @mol

    I just wanted to echo what the others have said - whenever you have medical questions, the GP is often one of the very best places to turn to :smile: You could also speak to 111 for some guided advice of where to turn to. 

    take good care :heart:
