Hello, four days ago while kicking a soccer ball with my son I injured my Iliotibial band, but the injury was to the CENTER of my outter thigh. I was getting a "jolt" of sharp pain in the center of my outter thigh every five minutes for the first three days and today it stopped. How long should I expect for a full recovery? I walk now with a limp. My age is 49 and I consume a diet of high protein.

Thanks,  Dave

Doesn't sound like a typical ITB issue, they usually come on gradually with increased mileage. Could be a quads strain in the outer muscle of the quads?
What movements hurt at the mo?
