Hamstring strain: this could just be hamstring tightness but it also could be something more serious such as a stress fracture. You should be evaluated by a sports medicine or orthopedic physician If it is just hamstring tightness a simple stretching program could significantly improve your symptoms

Be seen: If there is an acute change in the size of your leg you need to be seen to make sure it is not a blood clot; although there are certainly multiple potential causes as well.
