Pain in back of thigh

Sir, I am suffering from strain in side thigh (left thigh) due to which I am unable to run and walk probably. This is a sudden pain which arises during the movement of my left leg. I need your medical advice. I also want to ask that is it good for me to wear thigh cap or it will make the matter worse.
