Pop in calf muscles. Painful. Tingling, numbness in calf. Nerve damage?

A few weeks ago I heard and felt a pop in my calf . It hurt and my calf went weak. I babied it for a couple of days but it never felt completely back to normal. Last Thursday I was playing volleyball and is really popped and was very painful. I could barely walk off the court. Went to Dr. and have been doing RICE. If I stand for very long my calf starts to get cold and my calf and foot start to tingle and go numb. I start physical therapy this week. Did I do nerve damage? Should I get an MRI?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

As your symptoms are still persisting after conventional RICE regime, it suggests some significant injury to the involved area.

MRI is the best tool to diagnose all soft tissue pathologies, I advice you to get it done.

Tingling & numbness are typical features of a nerve irritation or injury.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
