I am a 20 year old male. I have been experiencing very painful cramps in my right, upper thigh. Some cramps are more painful than other. They used to last for only a few seconds and then go away for a long time; sometimes more than a few days. Recently however, the pain has been occurring more and more often. Now it occurs between intervals of less than 10 minutes. I have gotten less than 6 hours of sleep yesterday and the night before. At first I thought it might be due to stress, because I had many tests, but the problem persisted even after those tests were over. Then I thought it could be dehydration, because I fasted for a while, but even when I stopped, the problem didn't go away. Before the spread of COVID-19, I used to exercise very often, 4 times a week at least. But now, I don't get any exercise at all, and I practically just sit all day. Now I'm starting to think inactivity may be a cause. In order to relieve the pain I usually apply a some light pressure to the area and that seems to help a little. With the pandemic going on outside, I would really like to avoid going to see a doctor if the problem can be solved from home. But if not, I will go see one. Please advise me on what to do.
