Heaviness in thighs after dancing. Pain radiating to spine. Muscle strain?

I went out dancing and as soon as I made my way to the restrooms, my thighs felt heavy and ached a lot to the point where I was unable to walk up the stairs. I went home and the next morning was even worse and as the day progressed, the pain began to spread up my spine . When I walk my legs sometimes give way causing a knee jerk reaction and I find it extremely painful to get up and down. I know that sometimes you can pull a muscle of strain it in some way from dancing but this pain in my thighs was instant and is spreading to my back. Thank you for your response in advance.

Welcome to the forum.
I have read your query in detail. The symptoms you have described are more likely to be symptoms of muscles strain.
To get relief from the pain and for quick healing:
1. Do hot fomatation at the site.
2. Apply local anti-inflammatory gel 2-3 times a day.
3. Take anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen to reduce pain and local swelling or inflammation.
4. Do not try to do exercise that involve painful muscles. Give proper time for the injury to heal.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
