Hamstring Pain

6-12 months ago I started to get a quick shooting pain in my right hamstring. Its not a pain thats there all the time. It comes and goes. I though maybe from doing sprints i aggravated it. Well I stop sprinting many months ago and its still there. So im guessing its do to low thyroid. Since supplementing with Nature Throid 3 grains and most if not all Hypo symptoms disappeared except for this shooting pain. Could it be fibromyalgia and if so why haven't it went away with all the other symptoms. Its not a horrible pain. Its more of an annoying pain. Never experienced this until 6-12 months. You people have been a great help. Thank you

I turn to Arnica Gel if I have a muscular type pain in my leg. You could try it and if it doesn't work, then you will know it's something else.

I would look further back in the body and check out the Gluteus Medius. Push finger tips into the pain and then track upwards to find the source.

I have a niggling hamstring pain - when I turn over in bed and certain yoga asanas. Not there all the time but quite sharpe when it happens 😊 I have lower back issues at L4/L5 so am guessing that is the root cause.

Look up Ray Long and his wonderful illustrations in - The Muscles of Yoga - to understand more of what is happening around the butt and hamstrings ....

Marz You are so knowledgeable.... I get sciatica intermittently; but I think it may be the way I sit at my laptop !

Yes sitting can affect the butt muscles - they are the biggest ones we have ! - I suffered with what I thought was Trochanter Bursitis for six months from this time last year - it was agony. Affected the Sciatic nerve but wasn't sciatica - as confirmed by a Sports Physio in London when we were staying there last year.

People often hold the Trochanter and say - oh my hip hurts - but the hip joint is situated more in the groin.

Last time I visited the UK in October I saw a Chiropracter who thought the Bursitis was caused by my back issues and not an issue in itself. As with everything in our bodies it is the Root Cause that is the problem whilst we busily set about treating the symptoms. It was my neck and shoulder in BIG trouble on that occasion :-)

At 5'11'' - there is a lot of body to maintain and it is getting harder and harder !!

Hi, I don’t know if it is relevant but while trying to treat the root cause, like Marz says, I previously used hard balls and rollers for fascia treatment. Agony during and after. I switched to soft roller and balls (see Melt method for example) and am feeling a big shift in all the sore spots (shoulderblades, hip everywhere, down one leg, even soles of feet). Yoga and pilates moves feel better, more natural as well.

Hope you figure it out!
