So hard sparring day yesterday at Performance Gym here in Darwin, Australia (actually, it's heavy sparring every day at this gym) and I make the mistake of pushing one of the gym's top fighters a little too hard, i guess (all I did was land a coulpla hooks). He responded with a very well timed and full strength leg kick that got me right in the middle of the femoral nerve in my left thigh.
Needless to say, I can hardly walk or bend my leg, or even put on my socks today!
This is not the first time I'm sore from a low kick, but deff. the worst.
I applied ice and have been rubbing it with coconut oil with some minor improvement.
Any advice on how to get back to training ASAP?

A) See a doctor if it persists or affects work.
B) Don't post in the Advanced striking forum. Maybe the Basic or Physical forums would be better.
C) If it's a bruise, tough it out. If it's a fracture, well, it's a fracture. I doubt there's much to this.

Some types of Dit Da Jow seem to help, mostly its going to take time.

Tiger balm/icy hot will do the same as dit da jow (similar ingredients) Highly doubt fracture it would seriously hurt like a bitch.

you and your sparring partners need to seriously lighten it up. Sore legs from sparring is something you get used to, but if you find yourself unable to train because of it things are going seriously wrong. I've never had to take a break from training because people were going off on my legs.

getting a bit better today after long slow bike ride and lots of massage with oil and ice pack. Also taking arnica and going for a swim later.
Yes, I agree, the guys at this gym should lighten up a little for sparring, but on the other hand, it is a very "alive" place!
Yes, I am smarter than you are.

Ice right away, then heat. Stretch it, work it slowly to keep blood flowing through the area.
If it hasn't started feeling better in 4-5 days see a doctor.

Do all of the above and then concentrate really hard on checking every kick thrown at that leg in the next week. My leg was jacked up too due to taking a full kick to the side from a 250 pound guy and everytime it just about healed up i'd take a medium kick to the same spot a few days later and be out of the round.
(This is assuming you were both using shin-pads, if not you really deserve to be out of training for a month)

Above suggestions are good. Watch it closely though. If it's not improving, or feeling more sore after 3 or 4 days, definitely consider seeing a doctor. With massive internal fluid buildup, you've got a chance for infections to develop. You do not want that.
