Painful, swollen upper left leg, buttocks. Had no injuries. Difficulty in walking, sitting. Suggestions?

My upper left leg is extremely painful---like a very bad bruise . I have had no injury. This started Wednesday night while lying on the couch. I have some difficulty walking. I have to sit very slowly. I cannot lay on either side in bed--it is too painful. This morning (Saturday) I noticed my upper leg and buttox are swollen.

Welcome to the forum.
According to your description , pain over your uer leg and buttocks seems to be inflammatory in nature.

I advice you to give you rest to the part affected, take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation and consult your doctor for thorough examination and rule out any infective cause.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
