I tore my hamstrings (back of my left thigh and butt) 2 weeks ago while splitting. I don't feel any pain while walking, running or dancing hard, I don't notice any bruise nor swelling either. Pain only bothers me when I stretch my leg. It is pretty frustrating for me since I have to stretch to get flexibility but clearly I cannot at the moment. I do RICE protocol but I haven't felt any better. I hope my hamstring would be healed soon.

I had the hamstring injury last seek. I am treating the injury with Aleve, and using a walker.

I tore my hamstring on January 8th of this year. I was in so much pain I had to be taken to the emergency room in a rescue squad. I'm still recovering. I am on less pain medication but I know when there will be a change in the weather.
