Hi,Id be greatful for some advice if anyone can help.
Whilst out running about 5 weeks ago I felt a sudden 'pop' in my right calf muscle and stopped immediately..The pain was too intense to continue.I hobbled home, iced and stretched, but over the next few days my leg looked swollen and felt painful and extremely stiff. 5 weeks later this has lessened somewhat..I can now walk without much pain but running is impossible..too painful and I feel a pull if I try. Ive been to see my Gp who has referred me to the skeletal/muscular dept @ out local hospital- but this will take some time.
Has anyone any idea about what it might be? or what I can be doing in the meantime? I can cycle without pain and am doing some gentle stretching..but Im desperately missing my running!
