Last week felt a tear and pain in left calf so bad had to stop workout immediately. Could not walk on left leg at all for a week. Iced for 3 days, on crutches and rested. Hospital said its a gastroc tear. The bruising come up after 5 days on inside / middle lower third of lower left leg about 2 inches above ankle. V v limited bruising in middle of big calf muscle. Cannot weight bear and contract left calf 8 days after injury. Could soleus and gatroc be torn as big calf muscle is tender and if I contract and weight bear by accident that's the area that hurts. Sorry if spelling wrong! Any info appreciated as never happened to me before, though I see from the forums many have suffered before me!
