I went to sleep about two-three months ago and everything was fine. When I got up the next morning my right hamstring was in pain. It was not debilitating pain but painful nevertheless and definitely out of the normal. The pain goes from the top of the knee area to the buttocks. It’s not entirely the full hamstring area all the time. It doesn’t bother me when I sleep. Only bother me when I first get from a sitting position but when I take a few steps [not very good BTW] the pain starts to diminish but doesn’t go away completely. Also bothers me when I sit on a hard surface.
My Neuro thought it was a back issue and he sent me for a MRI. The MRI shows some herniation around the L5S1 disk which happened from a fall years ago.
Although I had the herniation years ago, I didn’t have any hamstring area problem. BTW, the hamstring muscle is fine. It’s the nerve that’s causing the problem.
Just wondering if the Ataxia is showing itself another way now because my gait is not normal. Just so you know my gait has been affected for many years!
