Neuropathy: I suspect you have nerve root impingement in your spine, caused when you hurt your back. This could be due to a disc herniation, lumbar sprain with irritation of the lumbar plexus nerves, or even sciatica. You may have simply re-strained your hamstring alternatively. If you are weak, i highly suggest you see a sports medicine physician, pmnr, or spine doctor for further work-up. Don't wait.
