Pulled inner thigh muscle. Why trouble moving and holding knee up high?

I am a 21 year old male and play on a slow pitch softball and I thought I pulled my inner thigh muscle in the middle between my knee and my groin because it hurts with sertan movements and there is a bruise there. Since Monday when i get in an out of cars if i lift my knee up high enough or if i sit down and stand up it feels like i have been stabbed in my leg with a knife, and i would describe the pain as a 9 at its worse.

You should do following to have relief in this-

-Take a good analgesic like advil or aleeve.

-Do cold fomentation ,if this injury is recent or warm fomentation if there is no swelling .

-Check for presence of swelling or redness at your thigh,if it is there then consult to your doctor.

Hope this all will help you.

With best wishes.
