Question: I developed a sprain in my left outer thigh when I woke up ,I did not understand what caused it,I did not get hurt but had this sprain.the pain continued to grow and it became so severe that I could not sleep after two days.there is a point on the left outside upon touching it feels very stiff and painful.all I remember is 2-3 days back I stretched my left knee and it hurt for a day and got fine,other than that nothing happened that should have the cause of my thigh pain!I took tolpazen for a day and it got much better,I also got an x ray done which was normal,do I need to worry or do any test?I still have pain twisting my body lying down or when I have to sit in the car or drive,while walking or standing its fine?
