Name of condition: Sore hamstrings and pain in feet,
Symptoms: Constant pain in right hamstring and right foot toe joint when walking or running.
Location of pain: Up the back of my right leg and in the big toe joint of my right foot
Duration: The hamstring had been tight for years, progressing to pain for about eight weeks. The foot had been painful for about three weeks.
Severity: I was able to carry on regular activities with some discomfort, but running was painful.
