Default Hamstrings tight/hurt when in deadlift set up....

Past couple months my hamstrings have felt very tight when in a deadlift position and when I pull it hurts in my hamstrings because they are so tight even just getting into deadlift position with no weight.. The tightness sometimes goes away by time I get to the heavier sets and sometimes does not. I stretched them for a few days pretty constant and my deadlifts felt normal again.. But then kind of stopped being consistent with the stretching and they are right back. Is this just tight hamstrings? I used to have great hamstring flexibility then all of a sudden this tightness started to happen and i wasn't stretching at all when my flexibility was good. What could be the cause of this tightness?

What's your current weight? Just asking because when I was heavier I started to pick up fatty liver disease from the onset of diabetes. This hampered mineral absorption and really gave me tight hammies.

Just trying to rule this out as a possible reason.

I just deadlift 135 and the bar felt like it was moving so slow because of how tight it feels in my hamstrings...what the hell is this?
