Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I would suggest you to get examined from orthopedic surgeon. There can be two possibilities. Either it is muscle pull or fatigue. It is involving hamstrings muscles. So you can get relieved by stretching exercise and hot water fomentation. Also I would recommend you to get MRI of the spine to see is there is any nerve compression is present.
