The severity of GTPS symptoms varies from person to person. However, the condition usually causes pain around a particular area on the outer and upper thigh. The affected area is usually very specific and often feels sore and tender. This side of the leg may also become swollen and warm to the touch. Certain activities are likely to exacerbate the pain, including climbing and descending the stairs, crossing one leg over the other, and lying directly on the painful side in bed.
