Strong pain behind thigh


My dad had been diagnosed with Parkinson 7 years ago.
The most problematic pain he has, is a stron chronic pain behind the left leg's thigh, which makes it immpossible for him to sit down, so he is doing almost every daily activity either standing or lying down.
We don't know if it is connected to the Parkinson or not.. but he suffers a lot and feels helpless.
He went to many doctors who can not explain this, and he is searching for someone who has the same problem, so he can talk to and feel he's not the only person in the world with this...
Can someone help me with this or suggest something to do?

Thank you very much,

    has he seen a doctor for what the cause may be? you could start with a board certified spine surgeon, if he has other symptoms accompanying the pain , they can order tests to help figure out what might be causing the pain he is having.
    has his parkinson's doctor been made aware of the pain? it could be muscular in that the muscles are effected in parkinson's, so first you guys need to determine which doctor to see to start the evaluation process.
