After you strain your hamstring, you may experience leg pain until the injury has healed. This pain typically occurs in the back of your upper leg, as well as the lower part of the buttock where the hamstring is attached. The pain may get worse when using the muscle while walking, bending or straightening the leg. A common complaint of people who have hamstring strains is that it is difficult to get out of bed, stand up, or sit down. This may make it difficult to go about your normal daily activities. Getting proper treatment can help to shorten the duration of the pain.
