A few weeks ago I got a sharp pain at the back of my lower left thigh, just above the knee which stopped me running.
It seemed to get better during the week. But I think I may have left it a week or two to recover.
I was able to run three times the following week and had no issues. Only around 5k each time. But when I went on a run the following Monday the pain was back, near the end of my run so had to walk the last 100 metres or so.
I left it a week, doing some hamstring strength exercises - lifting my legs with my feet on a chair. Everything felt okay.
But last night I only managed to run about two minutes before the pain started to come back so I stopped.
When I feel my leg I don’t feel any tenderness so I’m finding it hard to detect where the issue is. It does ache a bit if a stand a certain way but cannot find any tender points when pressing. The ache gets better after a few days which fools me into thinking it’s better.
Jut wondered if anyone has experience of this issue and any advice on treatment, strength exercises, etc. I can’t seem to find anything online. When I google it points me to upper hamstring or calves.
