So. I hiked this morning and about midway through the hike I started feeling my right hip flexor area hurt everytime I stepped forward with that leg, right where my leg connects to my pelvic area. I didn't trip, or fall, or do anything specific to have injured it, but it was a relatively sudden onset of pain. When the hike became steep it REALLY started to hurt, every step forward was agonizing. I also had an obligation to walk a dog for 40 minutes today so I'm sure that aggravated it even more. Now, at home, it's gotten to the point where it takes forever to get up the stairs, and I have to use my arm to lift up my leg to get dressed or get in bed, etc.
Did I just sprain a muscle or something? The pain feels like it's coming from INSIDE my leg, which is hard to explain. When I try to point to the pain, it's not my groin muscle or anything on the outside , it's like right in the middle of my joint... but inside(???) Sorry for the late explaination, I'm just trying to figure out what could have happened and how to get better because it's very painful to walk.
