For 3 weeks my calfs have been aching it hurts to walk espically run. This started when i started to go running. It sometimes lead to my ankle being sore. Help!
Hi. You have explained the reason on your own. Sudden starting of running has caused the calf muscles to go into strain. Stop running or doing any exercises that will stretch the calf muscles. Give rest , let them recover. Then start gradually.
 
feeling calf muscle pain
Hi, If this pain has started spontaneously without warning and there is some swelling, I suggest you see a doctor to exclude a DVT. If the pain followed exercise then it may be a pulled muscle. In this case, elevate your leg and apply ice 4 times a day. Regards, Dr K A Pottinger
