Pain in your thigh can be due to nerve impingement which may be due to trauma .
Another possibility is that of a muscle injury leading to such excruciating pain and even at time a blood filled collection after trauma (hematoma) can be painful.If the pain is not settling i would suggest a visit to your doctor for evaluation. If it turn out to be some nerve impingement ppain then it can further be investigated by an MRI. For relief of neuropathic pain drugs like gabapentin or carbamezipine might be helpful.
Feel free to ask if you have any more question and till you are satisfied

Yes a localized trauma to thigh muscle can lead to local ache and also it get worse on applying pressure over that area. Usually the nerve pain doesn,t give rise to local tenderness as it is a deep gnawing sort of pain.Nerve pain usually have a sharp shooting kind of character.
Although nerve pain can give such symptoms without hurting the back but the tenderness you have mentioned most likely indicate a muscle injury. It is possible that you might have injured your thigh at the same time when your back was injured and it went unnoticed and now it is giving such pain .Bruised muscle or even a collection of blood or secretions in the thigh can give rise to such symptoms
please do let me know if you have any more question
