    I know that feeling it sucks. I tore mine about 2 years ago while I was a D1 athlete I had to have surgery as the muscle tore complete off the bone then rolled all the way up into buttocks (hammies are like rubber-bands) continue moving on it getting blood flow to the injured spot, elevate, ice, DON’T STRETCH as you probably have micro tears in the others and if it’s just strained it will make it worse. I would go get an MRI if I were you.

    Y’all are joking, right? lol!

    That was me 30 years ago and I had the same advice given to me by my Dad. I’ll be 62 next month and I can’t even take my dog on a decent walk now, should’ve listened to my Dad. 30 years ago I was beating guys in arm wrestling that out weighed me by 100lbs, now I have trouble lifting a 35lb bag of dog food. I was strong as hell for my size and always felt a need to prove it, and I did till I blew out 3 discs in a row at the same time at 39 years old. Yep, damn sure wish I had listened to Dad, but I thought I knew it all. Ugh....

    I did something similar years ago. A rubberized thigh support to keep it warm and advil really helped. As mentioned above, you do need to move it to help it from freezing up and to help the bruise dissipate. A TENS unit might help too.

    Wow. Hope you get better soon.

    Good advice - got stay active but be reasonable with what you can do. We're getting older whether we notice it or not.

    Depending on how much you continue to bleed out/ severity of rupture proximal hamstring...... may want to get an ortho doc to look?? Typically toe touch weight bearing (crutches) a bunch of soft tissue work, no hamstring stretching (active)/but do stretch calves & hip flexors 4 weeks...... getting older ain’t for sissy’s
