Patient Comments: Hamstring Injury - Symptoms

What symptoms and/or signs were associated with your hamstring injury?

Comment from: tad, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: May 21

I am not an athlete, just a regular every day mum governing my school. Last Saturday I felt a slight activity in my hamstring, did not even take it so serious. With very little knowledge of the injury I have been bedridden for the past seven days, unable to walk and not being able to go to the bathroom.
