In brief: Sounds like

you may have a HAMSTRING tear..
..(Its a big tendon and partial tears are quite common!!) Continue RICE and ask your PCP for a referral to a Board Certified Orthopedist. Recently Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in the treatment of such tears ..first a Diagnosis!! Hope this helps! Dr Z
