    No prob. I see the doc in about half an hour. I'm expecting to be farmed off to physical therapy for a few weeks.

Unless I'm moving upwards, as in stairs or pushing up after kneeling, I don't notice it.

    My concern is this. Had I pulled it, I would remember the injury. My fear is that it's a nerve problem, because it cropped up after the five hour plane ride to Baltimore. I've got an appointment with my doctor, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and, if so, what was it and how long did it last?

    So far folks, middle age sucks.
    It wasn't with a hamstring but with my right Quad....similar circumstances.

    Last Thursday I started off with running 2M in the morning, lifted weights for about a half-hour, went to work for about 10 hrs, went and ran my son's soccer practice (where I run drills with them) went and trained for about 4 hrs, came home and crashed.

    Woke up the next morning and we drove to San Diego. Got there checked into the hotel and, like always, we took the stairs to the third floor. Right when I reached the second floor landing my quad just went out on me and it hurt the rest of the weekend. Granted we did a ton of walking around, but it hurt for the next three days.

    My main concern is that there's never been any pain, except to the rest of my leg that's taking up the slack and that it's now been several weeks.

    As expected, the doc sent me off the physical therapy to have them figure it out.

    Yeah, but then you end up walking around stiff legged and that just doesn't look good.

    Assuming this means you aren't feeling any tweaking or strain from the muscle, I'm with you on the whole nerve-related thing. Pressure or tension on a nerve can result in pronounced weakness.

    Good luck with physio.

    Did they think it was exascerbated by the long inactivity on the airplane flight (coupled with the normal pressurization/depressurization)?

    Sounds like some kind of damage. Still, if it turns out to just be an imbalance, try these:

    My right hammy used to be noticeably weaker than my left. This exercise helped me even them out.
