If I am told I pulled my hamstring or quad then why do I feel sharp aches and pains in my thigh bone?

In brief: Get examined

While you may have actually strained either your quad or hamstring, sometimes you can sustain an avulsion fracture which can cause femur or hip area pain.
You may need an xray to evaluate the injury or even an MRI if it is a severe tear.
