It's a pain in the ass for me to go to a doctor. I have to go all the way up to the VA 30 miles away. So what happened is a few weeks ago I started working out after a period of not working out, and going hard and not easing into it. Now I have sharp pain in my lower left, upper thigh hip area. I guess the hip flexor. I can barely bring my knee up to my chest or climb stairs without sudden sharp pains. Or when I twist my legs when walking like getting out of a car. Is it just a strain or tear and wait for it to heal? Been like this for 2 weeks now.
