Suggest treatment for strained muscles

I have severe pain in my hamstrings and I also feel like I am going to collapse while I am walking, and it hurts me to walk. I have just consulted with my doctor and she thinks it is strained muscles, but I know that I have not strained any muscles as I do not play sports. I am having a hard time believing this.

Hi,
Thanks for your query.
The symptoms you have described are more likely to be symptoms of muscles strain.
To get relief from the pain and for quick healing:
1. Do hot fomatation at the site.
2. Apply local anti-inflammatory gel 2-3 times a day.
3. Take anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen to reduce pain and local swelling or inflammation.
4. Do not put weight or try to do exercise that involve painful muscles. Give proper time to heal.

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