I now havent run a step in 8 months due to sore hamstring in my left leg.I did wait a long time hoping it would settle down before going to a physio. The 1st one i went to didnt seem to have a clue what was wrong with me but told me to stretch , the 2nd did seem confident it was tight hamstrings ( i struggle to get either of my legs past 45 degress when lying on my back) and he told me to stretch to...which i admit i have been rubbish at but i am trying with a lot of discomfort.
Ive always suffered from quite acute shinplints in my left leg ( i wonder if its connected) but have never had any problems with my hamstrings before...it just came on suddenly..no pop or searing pain.
I have seen a lot of podiatrist in the past ( for shinsplints) who extracted a lot of money for useless insoles so i am quite cynical when it comes to paying money out these days.
Anyway..has anyone else had this ? and how was it remedied? Also would i be daft to do some light running on a flat surface?
Im rubbish if im not running and i get demotivated about any other exercise
