Brief Answer:
Painful thigh

Detailed Answer:
hi thanks for your question,

the pain could be referred from your lumbar spine or hip joint, or it could be directly related to a problem in your thigh.

after examining you and taking a more thorough history of your symptoms I would likely organize an X-ray of you femur including your hip joint. some blood work to look for any signs of inflammation may also be useful.

I hope this helps answer your question.

best wishes
