Nerve or hamstring:
This sounds like the area where the hamstring attaches to the ischial tuberosity (bone) and can be a source of pain. Pain from your low back with nerve irritation can cause similar symptoms. A blood clot is unlikely, as this often causes lower leg pain, swelling & sometimes redness in the leg and a fever. f I can help, then join my care team & virtual practice at

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more
