Nerve/Muscle pain

Hello, Last week while playing football, I pulled a muscle close to my thigh and upper groin (right side). Im not too sure if its just a muscle pain or Ive pulled a nerve or something else. There is no swelling around the region, only while stretching my leg I feel the pain. I can run using small steps on a medium pace but I Cannot sprint. Went through google and it gave me drastic answers! Would it be recommended to see a doctor personally for this or could be just fatigue.

Seems like a pulled muscle. Avoid activities like running, squatting, sitting cross-legged, jumping for 3 weeks. Do ice pack application. Consult an orthopedic for evaluation. May need MRI.

You seem to have muscle strain only. Take rest from sports for few days, if it doesn't get resolved then surely meet the Physiotherapist.

You seem to have a muscle strain(stretching or tearing of muscle), most likely the quadriceps muscle. Take adequate rest and do not get back prematurely to sports(sprinting, jumping , kicking, etc). If problem is not resolving you need to meet a orthopedic surgeon.

Its most likely a Groin Pull or Adductor pull. The only way to be sure is to get examined by an Orthopedic surgeon. What it needs is some rest, physiotherapy, stretching exercises and gradual resumption of sporting activity

hi, most probably it is ITB Pull. it will take few weeks to heal by itself. Not a issue of concern if the pain is reducing day by day, and no signs of swelling near groin area or irritation during urination. avoid squatting as it will again stretch the ligament to its full length. you should certainly go for lower abdominal / thigh ultrasound only if prescribed by the physician if the PAIN IS NOT REDUCING AT ALL, INCREASING WITH TIME, SOME IRRITATION IS PRESENT WHILE PASSING THE URINE.
Next Steps
you can apply icepack/coldpack at groin/ thigh region for 2-3 minutes and take a break for same duration and reapply.
Health Tips
Avoid squatting, Avoid running/walking with a long stride, and also avoid cross legged sitting. STAY HEALTHY

This is very common injury when people play sports without warm up. When you dont get treat properaly, injuryies carries long time. This is groin pain and including adductor muscle pain, that only confirm by examination. Consult to sports physio to get proper treat.
