So for about a year and a half I’ve had a pain at the top of my hamstring and deep glute pain during squats deadlifts and lunges. I finally had enough and had an MRI. The doctor stated that my hamstring is pulling on the skin that covers the bone (where the top hamstring attaches to the bone). He said it’s becoming chronically inflamed and recommended 6 weeks of rehab along with a prescription anti inflamatory meds. My question is should I still be rolling and stretching this area everyday or should I be letting it rest and recover?

Yes, you should be rolling stretching it if this makes it feel better.
I would stay away from the anti inflamatory meds.
If you aren’t addressing what is causing it to be inflammed the inflamation will continue to occur.
Have you hit anything up/downstream of the issue?
Are you doing anything to improve the skin sliding surfaces?

This sounds like the classic case of pulling an explanation out of his rear end. Find a Thai massage trigger point therapist in your area and he/she will probably clear you up in 2-3 sessions.
