I have had discomfort in my hamstring area for just over one week. It is not majorly painful but slows me down when running. The hamstring is tight and moderately painful when I stretch it. It gets uncomfortable when I sit for too long or if my leg is straight for too long - in fact when I sit for too long my butt cheek gets uncomfortable!
It is difficult to determine the exact area affected, but it seems to be just below my bottom and down my outer thigh. I have been able to cross train, use the stepper and cycle in the gym without much issue but I have taken a rest from running. Its been about 10 days now and it is no better. I would appreciate any ideas or suggetions. Should I rest it totally or stretch it or go and see a sports therapist?
