Do you have a history of knee problems?
Also FAZC mentioned it could be a weakness. performing hamstring exercises are really important but it also sounds like you have weak glute muscles which may be causing your left hamstring to overcompensate.
It also be smart to perform hamstring exercises unilaterally. if your left hamstring is overcompensating for a weakness/injury then more than likely your right side isn't getting much work done.
just throwing my 2 cents out there and hopefully it helps you.
