I was doing lunges and my left leg I felt a rippling effect

Resolved Question:

I was doing lunges and my left leg I felt a rippling effect or tear in what I thought was my quadracept. When I was finaly able to get up, I had excruciating pain in the inner upper thigh. I could not lift or move the left leg forward without using my arms to drag the left leg forward. I dont know if it is the hip flexur, the adductor longus, or groin pull. I can walk only if I wrap an ace bandage around my thigh tightly.

Sign: Can't walk.

Anthony Bray MD :

Hello!

Anthony Bray MD :

I would recommend that you continue the ACE wrap, anti-inflammatory meds suuch as Aleve 2 tabs twice a day, cold packs for pain relief....

Anthony Bray MD :

Due to severity of your injury I think that you should see an orthopedist or your primary care doctor ASAP!!

Anthony Bray MD :

I think that having physical exam by an orthopedic specialist will be the most helpful step for you at this point....

Anthony Bray MD :

I hope this helps>> Please let me know if you have further questions and I will be happy to get back with you!!

Anthony Bray MD :

Best Regards,

Customer: I went to the emergency room and exists was taken. No damage to the hip or bones. They just said rest it and gave pain meds.
Anthony Bray MD :

OK > well at last you were seen and evaluated BUT I would say to keep an eye on the injury and if you are not seeing improvement by 7 days out and able to walk (soreness still I would expect) then I would advise that you follow up with orthopedist... xrays would show fracture of bones and this was ruled out but would NOT show soft tissue injury which this sounds to be....

Anthony Bray MD :

Severe enough tear of muscle could potentially need surgery...

Anthony Bray MD :

If the ACE wrap and pain meds allowed youto move your leg pretty normally then I doubt a complete tear of any muscle.... you would likley have very pain lump if this were the case as well...

Customer: After going to the emergency room I was given pain meds and told to rest and no fractures foundry
Anthony Bray MD :

Right >> I agree with REST // Anti-inflammatory meds // pain control //

Anthony Bray MD :

I would advise follow up with orthopedist if not seeing improvement by 7 days.. (not 100% but definite improvement )
