On Monday evening I strained my calf muscle in my right leg. I couldn t walk at all on it Monday night into Tuesday morning, but it has been feeling better every day and I have been using it more normally with some pain. This morning my lower leg muscles started cramping and I have been fighting with it all day trying to not let it cramp. Is this normal after this type of injury?
As mentioned by you, you had an injury in the calf, a thoroguh Musculoskeletal assessment is advised.
Also, cramps are common post injury due to insufficient use of muscle and injury. so do not worry much. Take hot water fermentation and little salt in lemon juice to balance the muscular requirements. Also, slow ankle toe movements will help further to avoid cramps in longer run.
