Pain in inner thigh area started early today but now have painin hip and lower back, hurts when bend leg and a throbbing pain all left side what is it?

Lt Thigh, Hip & Back: Hello. What activity were you doing when pain hit? Where does it hurt when you bend your left leg? Do you mean bringing your thigh to chest hurts? Does pain go past your left knee or stays in your thigh? Is it worse with sit, stand, or walk? Can you lay on your left side? Need little more info. If you have no GI issues, consider topical or oral OTC NSAID to reduce inflammatory throbbing pain.

Back/Pelvic Eval: I recommend a more comprehensive evaluation by a physiatrist/sports medicine or orthopedic specialist. The lower back and pelvic region is complex and there are multiple sources for that type of pain/symptoms and a thorough history and physical exam is needed to assist you.

Many Possibilities: Depending on how long it's been going on, I would consider an evaluation by a spine specialist. Sometimes it could be a muscle imbalance, early onset arthritis or scoliosis. Also could be a pinched nerve/herniated disc. Either way it might be good to figure it out and get appropriate treatment.

Pain: The coughing may have affected your back. It may range from a muscle pull or strain, twisting of the joints in your pain or inflammation/compression of a nerve root. As long as there are no other ill effects rest your back, use heat and Ibuprofen to see if this resolves. And loss of your bowel and urine function and inability to use your legs or persistent pain should be seen by your doctor now.

See your doctor: The dull ache in your back may not be muscular in nature. Kidney stones frequently manifest with a dull ache which progresses to pain upon urination. I would see your doctor so he can order appropriate testing such as a kidney ultrasound.

Ice or heat, rest: Pain that occurs with breathing in can be Pleurisy, where lining of lungs are inflamed & breathing in is painful. Also pain could be due to muscle spasm, paraspinal muscles along the spine can spasm, along with muscles left side of neck, causing pain. Rest & take it easy, try OTC aleve (naproxen) 1 tablet with food twice daily for a few days, see MD if no better. Physical Therapy helpful if muscle spasm
