inner thigh and knee pain
if you run your thumb from the ASIS through the groin and down the inner thigh is there pain?
Inner thigh and knee pain requires more examination.
After gardening a week ago I experienced a really sore knee and thigh, but it all cleared within a few days; however since that time I feel pain in the top of my inner thigh/groin area; a dull ache. I can't really lift my right leg very high.
I feel it is improving, but how long before I go to the doctor?Hello Michelle,
It's your call, of course, but in my experience most doctors will just prescribe anti inflammatories or pain killers. What's needed is a good examination to find out what's going on.
I don't believe in rushing off to the doctor for every snivel or a little pain to the chiropractor; this does sound like something more though. If it's improving of its own accord, you could certainly wait a week or two.
Hip conditions often radiate to the knee, so only an examination will distinguish between something in the knee, going up the thigh, or vice versa, or even from the lumbar spine. Do you have any back pain?
Just generally be careful for a week or two and if you are not happy that it's settling then consult someone; it's important it recovers back to your old self.
Some gentle exercises for the offending joint or muscle are now important.
I hope this helps; if you reply please not from your mobile; correcting your grammar isn't my favourite!
