I'm 17 years old, and just recently when I wake up my thighs will ache - just my thighs not my calves or knees or feet. I usually wake up early[5-6am] so I like to go back to sleep but my leg pain is so severe it keeps me up. They don't hurt when i get up only when I am sitting or laying down in the morning. They never hurt later in the day.
I tried stretching them out and looking for answers on the web but I havent found any that are very similar to myself [mostly because age and i'm not pregnant].
I'm on the birth control shot, and I actually have to go get a shot this week. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?
My diet has been very poor lately as well... Choosing to eat small meals in the day [yesterday i ate 2 veggie corn dogs, maybe 2 or 3 cups of noodles and 2 slices of bread], not eating at all until the end of the day and eating a large meal, or not eating after 5pm then eating a large breakfast in the morning. Oh I'm also a peskatarian, so I don't eat meat other than fish -if you consider fish a meat that is.
I'm not sure if weight or height have anything to do with it, but I'm 5'6" and probably around 110lb, more or less.
