Q. I have just developed a pain in my calf - feels like it clicks when I walk, and is a sharp pain
I first noticed this problem this morning. As I stepped out of my car, I felt a sharp pain in my left calf, and it has gone worse as the day has gone on. No pain until I walk.
|A1||hmmm...now as i think of it- fatman's answer seems more logical. but usually people can tell the difference between strained muscle and other stuff. if it was just a pulled muscle he would have thought of it and naturally massage the area. no?|
|A2||you may have pulled your calf muscle. Try doing stretching of your calf and light massaging. Also apply ice to it and heat (ICY HOT patches work.)|
|A3||sounds like a broken ankle to me...is it swollen? have you injured it somehow in the past two days..? maybe in your sleep? the next step you should do (this one won't hurt ;) ) is go make an x-ray of your foot.|
