Customer Question
The pain in my...

The pain in my upper thigh started as a seemingly pulled muscle, to the point I can not extend my leg or put my weight on my right leg.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No swelling. When I have my leg slightly propped with a heating pad, it feels almost pain free that way.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

It started slowly after my right foot hit a stationary display at a department store while I was walking at a normal pace. It has continued to worsen. Has been almost 8 weeks ago. No other health issues

Hi, and thank you for choosing Justanswer about your concern. I’m Dr Ted Manos M.D. and I can respond. A problem such as you describe appears to be a strain of the groin muscles in the area of you pain. These usually heal on their own within a few days. 8 weeks is much to long to be just a strain. It may be a muscle tear or some type of hernia. Because it has lasted this long, you actually may need to be evaluated for some type of surgical repair. I hope my information helps and just some rehab might be added.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
