Have you had an MRI of your muscle to see if there is any muscle tear?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is it the right leg or left leg?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You mentioned 'upper leg', is it the thigh or the upper part of the leg below the knee?

Customer: Yeh and when I'm lying Down when i move my leg it hurts
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is it the upper leg below the knee or the thigh?

Customer: The upper thigh above the knee
Dr. Shahzad MD :

and does it hurt more when you walk around?

Customer: Some times not all the time
Dr. Shahzad MD :

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.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Complete rest means you can walk around but no exercise and no brisk walk.

Customer: Ok thanks very much
Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are most welcome
Wish you all the best.
