Ok, my first post!
I was sitting down yesterday to eat dinner, and as I was half way between standing up and sitting down, I had this pain in my left leg. In my thigh, on the ouside about 1/4 down from my hip. It felt just like somone just hit me in the leg. So I sat there for a sec and finished eating. As I got up, it was really sore, and sore to walk on. I woke up this morning, and didn't feel any pain, but as I walk around it came back. On a scale from 1-10 right now I 'd say it's a 2. Just enough to know it's there. People tell me it might have been a cramp, but it didn't spasm or twitch or anything like that.
Any thoughts?

Hi Roddy and welcome! Wow, how freaky. I'm sure someone here might have some thoughts on what happened - but it may have just been some funky cramp. Did you do any new extraneous activities that day that might have caused a pulled muscle or cramp?  Do you have any other issues that would cause this to be a concern?
I say, keep an eye on it, I would suggest some daily stretching and possibly lightly massaging your leg once or twice a day as well to see if that helps.

Thanks for the reply CaMama,
But nope, I didn't do anything out of the norm that day. I've been watching it, and there's no redness, swelling, or bruising going on either (it's times like this where you wish it would show something, at least it would narrow it down) lol.
I've noticed though, if I stay off of it, it feels much better, but I can still feel the place by either pulling my leg up, or if I run my hand down the outside of my thigh. (feel as in soreness in my leg)
I tell ya what it feels like though, it feels like some kind of bruise, but there's no marks there of any kind. So yeah, I'm stumped too. Old age perhaps, lol. I'll be 30 in 12 days :(

roddy hi and welcome to HW,

We are glade to have you.I will say I don't think the rip old age of 30 is not to blame.I know the feeling you are talking about and my Rheumy told me I have pulled a museal (sp) and it will cause this.I wished that I had some info but i don't.I do know that with mine it felt alot better if I keept as much weight off of my leg(s).
