Weirdest hamstring pain
9:44pm, 3 Feb 2014
CuddySorry to abuse the threads and lovely Fetchies for a silly little question but this is really starting to bug me now.
For about a week my left hamstring and side of the butt have started stiffening up during running and I start losing range of motion. I've taken lots of time to stretch as always, added tennis ball, etc but it seems to be getting worse. Tonight I did a bit of foam rolling and the weirdest thing happened - rolling on the upper part of the hamstring flips a sharp pain to my quad! I've heard of pain radiating down/up the leg but never to the opposite muscle group.
Any ideas are welcome. I'll continue to stretch, heat, etc and find myself a sports massage shortly.
