Thigh injuries

Was 95km into a 200km ride when my right leg spasmed from knee to hip. Was in great pain for about 5 minutes until the medical staff applied a cold compress. Had to withdraw even after the spasm released as it would recur when I tried to pedal. It is now 3 days later and it still hurts even in a resting position. Can't find a clinic or doctor interested in looking at the leg as they feel all it needs is rest. I've had cramps and muscle spasms before none like this. Any hints?
