I popped a blood vessel behind my knee after doing a leg curl. What should I do?

Ouch!: I'm guessing you probably have a bruise, and you may be a bit sore. But, overall, your exercise is probably doing you far more good than harm! you may want to hold off on the leg curls until you're less sore (if it hurts), or try a different exercise to work your hamstrings. Btw, it might be time to mix it up a little and do something different: swimming or a spin class, for example. Good luck. ...Read more

Random dark bruising over R hamstrings. Did not hit my leg, or sit on something. Broken L foot. Overcompensating with weight and burst a blood vessel?

Be seen: There are multiple possibilities, including an injury to the hamstrings by compensating for the contra lateral broken foot as you suggested. But if you have been more sedentary from the fracture, it is possible it could be related to a blood clot and so I would let your doctor know and be checked for it. ...Read more
