I was doing a pistol to a seated position on a couch last night, then when I squatted off the couch, I felt a muscle spasm and a cramp in my glute-ham tie in region.
This occurred while I had very little sleep, had a ton of caffeine in my system, and I was dehydrated.
Does this sound like a muscle pull? Sometimes, when I squat down to get something now, on the reversal I get a little hint of that spasm cramp thing. The pain is mild and feels a like pinch with some tingling feeling and it will sometimes radiate to my knee and the top of my hips if I've been sitting down for a while (never my back). The hamstring on the affected side is also really really tight whenever I stand up after sitting for more than 5 minutes.
What I've done so far:
-foam rolling, trigger wheel, tennis ball work from all directions.
-stretches meant to improve internal hip rotation (mines terrible)
-gently hamstring stretches
-adductor work with bands
-avoid squatting motions
-taken fish oil, 1000mg ibuprofen, Magnesium (in case it was cramp that caused all that, it'll be less likely to happen again), and msm+glucosamine
-just taken it easy in general
