The oddest muscle issue...

I have the strangest issue going on with my thigh, maybe a pull? I didn't pull the hamstring (thank goodness b/c that would really suck) and I didn't pull the front of the quad either. It's not the groin, it's somewhere behind the front of the quad but below the groin and still on the upper thigh.

I wondered what muscle it was so went and looked at a chart. I think it's the Abductor Longus muscle. Didn't know there were that many thigh muscles.

It doesn't hurt or ache except at the oddest times, like moving my legs to sit cross-legged, getting up from laying down, or (shock!) when I'm exercising with Jillian which I started again. Still, even then, it's a twinge more than pain but a twinge that clearly and loudly states, you have no strength to move that way. Yeah, actally, that's exactly what it's like. It's like I have one muscle in my leg that has decided it's not going to play with the others for now.

Ever had one of those kinds of twinges? They are so weird, right? I keep waiting for it to get better on it's own but can see it will be one of those drawn out, recurring items until just one day, it's gone. yuck. Well, at least it's not something worse.

Yes, clearly I've reached the point of boredom this evening that I felt the need to look that up and post it for you. Perhaps I'll retire to bed and just see you tomorrow.

Cheers! Beck

This was just like a anatomy lesson from my nursing student days.

It could be referred pain from sciatica. You did have that butt injury earlier in the year .(I knew that mental image would come in handy sometime )

Do you take a multivitamin/eat right? Bananas help muscle pains from overwork (they have a bunch of potassium in them) and a multivitamin will also help to give you enough potassium to not be sore.

very interesting, and who knew Shay was such a wealth of information combined with a crazy good memory!

Hope the twinge goes away - that sounds uncomfortable!
