How do I know it was a real rip? Great pain, no sleep, limping, soreness, swelling, weakness upon lifting leg in postions, knotted sore spot, pain upon touching, slower movements, etc. Anyone else heal a ham rip in four days? No.
Sorry, that type of injury takes a couple weeks to heal. The cells involved in repairing a hamstring rip takes 3-4 days just to get to the site
. You had acute inflammation at most. Your body did NOT repair a hamstring rip in 4 days. Biologically impossible. Stop making crap up.
