Siva, it sounds like you have inflammation of the muscles or the nerves of the thigh. Taking anti-inflammatories like Arthrotec®, Brufen®, Celebrex®, etc for 3-5 days should clear it up. If it doesn’t clear up it might be a sign of something more serious like a pinched nerve or even heart problems. The best would then be to see your doctor a.s.a.p. Good luck.
