Left thigh pain

Hello, im 15, male
i have pain in my upper left thigh, it makes my leg harder to move, and when i do so, it hurts. When sitting, or in the bed, or standing it doesnt hurt, but when i try to walk, or basicly any movement of the leg pain starts, also when i try to sit down, it feels very tight, like the muscle wont allow me to bend my leg so far, so i have to sit down very slowly, so it can 'strech' out, I have been kicked with a knee on that place, it was an accident.
I, have read a couple of posts, describing similar simptoms, but no cases exactly like mine, i have been hit yesterday, but the pain isnt dropping,
I'we read its either torn muscle tissue, or a trapped nerve.
The more i read about muscle strains, and tears, the more i think i have that, grade 2/3
any help is appreciated

ps. i cant find a section that covers leg pain, so admins please move it, if it is in the wrong section

my parents saw this, and they had let me to post this, is that ok than ?

Welcome to Spine-Health

One of the most important things that members can do is to provide the rest of the community with as much information about themselves as possible. It is so very difficult for anyone to respond when we do not have enough information to go on. This is not meant to indicate that you are doing anything wrong or violated any rule, we are just trying to be pro-active and get the information upfront so that people can start responding and your thread is more effective.

So many times we read about members who have different tests and they all come back negative. The more clues and information you provide, the better chances in finding out what is wrong, The fact that your test results are negative does not mean that you are fine and without any concerns. Many times it takes several diagnostic tests and procedures to isolate a specific condition.

Here are some questions that you should answer:

    - When did this first start?
      . Year, Your age, etc
    - Was it the result of an accident or trauma?
    - Are there others in your family with similar medication conditions?
    - What doctors have you seen? (Orthopedic, Neurosurgeon, Spine Specialist, etc)
      . Which doctor did you start with? Ie Primary Care Physician
      . Who are you currently seeing?
    - What Conservative treatments have you had? Which ones?
      . Physical Therapy
      . Ultrasound / Tens unit
      . Spinal Injections
      . Acupuncture
      . Massage Therapy
    - What diagnostic tests have you had? And their results (MRI, CTScan, XRay, EMG, etc)
      . Summarize the results, please do not post all details, we cannot analyze them
      . How many different tests have you had over the years? Similar results?
    - What medications are you currently using? (details, dosage, frequency, etc)
      . Name of Medication
      . How long have you been using this?
      . Results
    - Has surgery been discussed as an option? (If so, what kind)
    - Is there any nerve pain/damage associated?
    - What is your doctor’s action plan for treating you?

Providing answers to questions like this will give the member community here a better understanding
of your situation and make it easier to respond.

Please take a look at our forum rules: Forum Rules

I also strongly suggest that you take a look at our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) which can be found at the top of the forum menu tab or by going to FAQ There you will find much information that will

    - Help you better utilize the Spine-Health system
    - Provide pointers on how to make your threads / posts
    - Tips on how to create your avatar (your picture), posting images, etc
    - General pieces of valuable information


Please remember that no one at Spine-Health is a formally trained medical professional.
Everything that is posted here is based on personal experiences and perhaps additional research.
As such, no member is permitted to provide

    - Analysis or interpretation of any diagnostic test (ie MRI, CTscan, Xray, etc)
    - Medical advice of any kind
    - Recommendations in terms of Medications, Treatments, Exercises, etc

What could be good for someone could spell disaster for another.
You should also consult your doctor to better understand your condition and the do’s and don’t’s.

It is very important that new members (or even seasoned members) provide others with details about their condition(s). It is virtually impossible to help another member when all the details we have are

I’ve had this for years, it hurts, I cant move my shoulder – what could this be, what treatment should I get?

Diagnosing spinal problems can be very difficult. In many ways it’s like a game of clue. Especially, when the diagnostic tests come back negative – no trouble found! Then it’s up to the patient and the doctor to start digging deeper. The doctor is like a detective. They need clues to help them move along. So, you as the patient need to provide the doctor with all sorts of clues. That is like it is here. Without having information about a condition, its impossible for anyone here to try to help.

There are no medical professionals on the forum side of this site. Therefore everything you read is based on the personal experiences and/or research done by the individual member. Comments should never be taken as pure medical facts. You need to discuss this with your doctor. They are the only ones that can provide you with detailed information about you, the patient.

hello, this is John, aka the

hello, this is John, aka the father,
can you just help my kid.... he was so hyped when he registered to get some help, we know it isnt real docs. talking, but my son just needs some comments, on what might be bugging him, without going to the doctor... We try to help everyone, regardless of their age. Please keep in mind, that not all new threads/comments are replied to the moment they are posted. It takes time for people to read. Your son's thread, was just one of the hundreds that are created every day. Many people read about and direct their responses to chronic problems, since this is a site dealing with chronic spinal problems. That does not say that your son is not in pain, but he might just get past this before people start to respond. -- Ron DiLauro

There are no medical professionals on this forum we are just members with spine issues, to get a diagnosis he will need to see a doctor and be examined he will have to wait for members to respond if they have anything to add

Please try to understand that we are not in any position

to make recommendations or hand out advice. There are no medical professionals on the forums side of this site.

However, after reading what your son put together, I would classify for this as an acute problem. Something that came on suddenly and normally will also start to fade away. In most acute situations, icing the area the first day is very helpful, followed by some heat at night. Never keep ice or heat on an area for more than 20 minutes.

If after several days, the problem continues without any relief, you may want to contact your family primary care physician. Of course you want to keep an eye out for excessive black and blue area. Mark the outer area with a pen and see how that goes the next couple of days.

But as I said, we can not provide medical advice, if your son is very worried about this and/or you do not think it is right, then making an appointment with your PCP may be in order. I do not know if you have any walk in clinics where you live, that is another option.

Most of the time, with you children, their activities, sports, etc, bruises and lumps are part of it.

Thank you very much for your input.

i hope it will fade away soon, too, there are no visible color differences, it hurts when touching the hurt part, could it possibly just be a harder bruise,
thanks again, John.
