Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Have you been seen for this as yet?
Have you had an MRI of your muscle to see if there is any muscle tear?
Please let me know.
How long back was it that you hurt your leg?
Also can you please mention your age and gender?
Do you have any other medical problems/
On any medications for anything?
and you mentioned it is tender to touch right?
Is it the right leg or left leg?
You mentioned 'upper leg', is it the thigh or the upper part of the leg below the knee?
Is it the upper leg below the knee or the thigh?
and does it hurt more when you walk around?
I think that you should give it complete rest for at least 8 weeks and I would also recommend that you should have an MRI scan of your thigh to have a look at the muscle to see if there is a tear.
Complete rest means you can walk around but no exercise and no brisk walk.
