Hi

My hip flexor muscle has been really botheringf me. Not sure if it's a pinch muscle. But after squading d. own and getting back up my upper leg is sore. And at times if I put pressure on my leg really hurts and I feel I can't walk with out pain. It doesn't happen alot. I do exercise regularly, weight lifting, kickboxing, biking.

So do I use heat or Ice pack.

Thanks

You sound like you need an evaluation and an Xray. This could be a simple hip flexor strain however it could also be an intra-articular problem. THere are a number of problems that are from the hip joint that can cause similar pain. A simple plain xray is a good starting point.
