Shooting Pain

Right about in the afternoon I got some strange feeling in my left leg, just ignored it and kept doing what I was doing. Later on in the day towards 3:30 pm the pain got worse, and its a strange feeling. It didn’t feel like a joint or muscle pain, it was a strange throbbing pain the increased or decreased in pain. I was doing anything suddenly I would feel a shooting pain at the top of my left leg, and if I stood it made no difference, I tried walking it off but that didn’t help much. Later on the evening the pain increased to a immobilizing amount, I couldn’t really ignore it since it would stop me from walking and I would lean on the wall. I called up a friend and he told its one of a few things which I couldn’t remember their names, but he said its probably tendinitis and if that’s the case then I should just rest, if it consists until next morning I should come in to have it checked out. Based on his recommendation I put some deep heat and I’m hoping to pass out, but it was really annoying.
