Silly me did the splits without stretching or warming up. Right then and there the muscle right below my glut on my right leg had severe pain. It hurt to walk. It’s about 3 days after and it is still sore when I stretch and even attempt to do anything like the splits. Please help me with treatment and an idea of when it will be better. Thanks!
I think you are referring to your hamstring. You are talking about the back of your leg correct? It sounds like a hamstring pull. Rest it and apply heat. Take a pain reliever. Do light stretches. Sit on the floor with your legs out straight and reach towards your toes. Don’t stretch too much, just enough to keep it loose. It will probably hurt for a few days, but will feel better with each day. If it doesn’t feel better within a week go to a doctor, it could be a tear and not a pull.
