I'm a runner, and my muscles and tendons are getting increasingly sore at the top of my femur on the outside of my leg. I stretch regularly. Ideas?

In brief: Sorry just noticed

Just realized you said top of femur. If in lower leg my answer. Would stand.
Out upper leg could be a bursitis or tendinitis....Even a type of fasciitis. Avoid offending activity for several weeks....Otc antiinflamatories and ortho follow up if conservative measures aren't enough.
