Brief Answer:
Seems to be hamstring muscle strain or tendonitis.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for your query.

The hamstring muscles get tight and inflamed, resulting in a hamstring muscle strain or tendonitis.

I would like to treat you with - hot water fomentation, muscle stretching exercises, ibuprofen along with muscle relaxant drug thiocolchicoside. Get it prescribed from your local doctor.

A progressive and targeted stretching program should be initiated when this occurs and can be done to prevent recurrent problems. Physical therapy may be necessary in severe cases.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

Take care
