About a week ago, I feel asleep with my legs upraised. I can sleep anywhere in the most uncomfortable positions if tired enough.. Since, I have felt pain going down the calf and then up the outer side of the hamstring..RIght leg only... I always get hyper about knee injury. But, the knee joints in and of themselves do not hurt that much...
When I pull up the lower leg and flex the knee in more than about a 45% angle, I can feel pain going up the calf and outer hamstring area..In fact to bend the leg more than 45 % hurts and is almost impossible..The pain when not flexing the leg is not too bad..Muscle/tendons effected always feels a little tight...Unless, I bend the knee beyond a certain angle,the pain is tolerable..
What maybe I bruised, twisted a tendon..
In spite of this dull pain, I go out riding..I can't give it up enough to wait it out more than a couple of days....Been riding..Like yesterday, 84 miles...I have to work the next 4 days so that will put me off the bike..
Do you all often feel muscle tightness, do you just ignore it; or do you keep on riding.Can't say, I have had this problem many times before.Do you do anything for it.
