Buttock pain so bad, left hip and knee pain severe with swelling i can't take much more! feel like i'm coming to the end of being able to handle it?

Lot of pain left groin buttock top of left leg can't put pressure on without using a stick but no swelling or bruising is it a pulled muscle?

If it came on due 2 a strain or injury it could b muscle, but the weight bearing seems 2 point 2 the hip especially if u have the pain just standing & not trying 2 move. The best plan is 2 b cn by an orthopedic surgeon 4 x-rays & exam. ...Read more
