In brief: Give it some time.
If it happened recently, ice the area for 20 minutes, 3-4 times per day.
Take an over the counter anti-inflammatory medication if you can, and, gently stretch the thigh/hip muscle. If you're not better in about 2 weeks, then see a sports medicine specialist.

In brief: R.I.C.E.
Rest, ice, compression, and elevation.
The qudriceps, hamstrings, and adductors are big muscles and any sprain or strain will create a lot of discomfort. Depending on the severity of the injury it can take weeks to months to fully recover from an injury. Hopefully this will resolve rapidly but in the future make sure that you stretch and warm up properly to avoid these types of injuries.
