Recently i have had a problem with my claf and hamstring. Before running there has been a mild pain, or of an ache, but one i get running my calf just seems as its aching. I ran the other night, and afterwards there was a pain in my bum, i think i've pulled a muscle there but not sure. Its not so much as a pain but more to to make me hobble for a bit. once i get walking i'm ok but it's still there. Any advice or anyone had this before.
Thanks

Sciatic nerve maybe ?

Try googling Piriformis Syndrome.

If it that, then I would suggest the lying stretch pictured at the right of this page:

Good little link RA - shows why a tight piriformis can affect the Sciatic nerve - that diagnostic test sounds interesting, let us know if you try that Matthew and if it gives any results.
