I have just been to my doctor yesterday with terrible pain

Customer Question

I have just been to my doctor yesterday with terrible pain in my right thigh and he has put it down to trapped nerves.He has prescribed Gabapentin capsules.Today the pain has eased but still very sore.Now I have noticed red abrasions all around the pain area and in my groin. Would you be able to tell me what this might be. Thank you.
