So I've been having this leg pain for a few days and I don't know what could of caused it.

I woke up on a Thursday and experienced a strong muscle pain in one of my legs that limits my movement, I can't bend down properly nor move properly without it hurting me.

Backstory: I don't do any of those dangerous exercise activities etc that could of caused my leg pain, I also don't consume enough dairy products (milk etc).

The pain I'm having right now is like a strong tightening feel, restricting me to pull and move my leg. The pain starts from my thigh area all the way down to my ankles.

I have researched about it on Google.. leading to all possible different kind of diseases and illness it may be. Don't want to misdiagnose myself without making sure it actually is something serious.

I don't know if pain killers will solve the issue or not?

Anyone have any other advice on how to tackle/help this muscle pain?

i suggest also resting and doing minimal physical stuff as it sounds like you might have sprained the muscle

Anti-inflammatory drugs or gel, the latter is probably more ideal. If you have access to a hot tub then go with that.

Definitely go to your GP and seek professional advice.

Also, are you sure it's just not a sore muscle after an intense workout? This can happen when you utilise one leg more than the other.
