Pulled calf muscle while playing tennis. Iced it. What else?

Hi. I pulled a calf muscle playing tennis 5 days ago. I ve iced it and foam rolled. Each day has gotten better. Today I noticed my ankle area bruised. I also have a faint green vein going up my leg but in the front of my leg. Not the backside. I ve been doing light activity. I ve continued to foam roll and I ve stretched it. It doesn t really hurt, just still a little tight in one spot. What else should I be doing and is the bruising,etc. normal?

Thanks for posting your query

You might having calf muscle strain. Ice fomatation is good for it.

You also give some rest to your leg, muscle relaxants & anti-inflammatory drugs.

But if pain persist, you had to visit the doctor for exam. of leg.
