    Default I severly pulled my hamstring, anyone have any suggestions??

    OK about 2 and half wks ago I had one of my powerlifters yell for me, he was stuck on the bench with about 275lbs so I straddled him and when I pulled up the bar I majorly pulled my left hammy forcing me to drop the bar back on him, we managed to get him out of it w hardly any injury but me! It was like doing a 275lb stiff leg deadliift cold. My leg bicep immediately swelled up and I could barely walk. the next day it was black & blue. I went to after hrs clinic and got an appt to see the ortho doc but had to wait until today, my ankle is now swollen and toes are all bruised from internal bleeding, I see a PT but not for another 3 wks, I'm on muscle relaxants and oxycodone.

    When I was in HS and played football I remember pulling one and I was on bench for next 2 wks, luckily the muscle didnt detach from the bone per my xray. Has anyone here ever severally pulled or tore one? I know they take forever to heal, if so what did you do to speed up the process? Dr told me I wont be squatting for many wks which really bums me!! Plus its painful as all fuck, bit after 2 wks its much better

    Any advice other that stay off it which is very hard for me to do exp during the day at work!

    Oxycodone. It must really hurt.
