Requires exam: preferably with an orthopedic expert. Without severe pain, redness, heat and swelling this "sounds" like a muscular issue; however, still requires an examination.

But any health care provider could examine you to get an idea of where this is coming from. Meanwhile, externally applied heat and resting and elevating the leg could help with the discomfort. You could safely take acetaminophen or a mild nonsteroidal as well if needed. Good luck!
