A nerve thing: Skin nerves will sometimes do this. It's like a temporary hypersensitivity issue. It's usually not a problem unless it persists, worsens, or is associated with other symptoms (swelling of leg, changes to skin/rash). You don't appear to have any underlying conditions that would contribute to nerve problems.

Can I have a flu shot in the thigh?

Yes.: It may not be as effective though. The shot is meant to be delivered into muscle, and depending on your fat distribution, the thigh may have a thicker layer of fat that prevents the needle from reaching the muscle.

RICE: When you strain muscles the best first thing to do is the "rice" principle. Rest, ice, compression, elevation. The next step is to get involved in a recovery program that includes stretching and strengthening that begins slow and progresses as your muscle heals. If things don't get better after 4-6 weeks then i would suggest getting evaluated by a physician.

Rest and stretching: For a grade 1 or 2 strains recovery involves rest, stretching, and controlled strengthening. Icing and stretching afterwards can be done a few times a day. When pain free full range of motion is attained through stretching, you may progress to controlled strengthening that would include stationary bicycle and eccentric exercises.
