I pulled my groin muscle-or-tendon several months ago, and I still have to be careful how I sit in my car's driver's seat. But it's a lot better than it used to be!
My doctor's nurse told me that "at my age" it would take a long time to heal. She recommended hot baths to both temporarily reduce the pain and also speed up the healing.
Don't know how it applies to hamstrings, though I'm betting it does.
I'm 65 so I don't have work for it to bother me at.
You're only 37 -- always have been, always will be
-- so you're not at retirement age yet. OTOH a young kid like you ought to heal quicker than a senior citizen like me!
At least, if it's not torn. And I both hope it isn't torn, and hope you'll heal fast.
