New to the forums here. Hopefully I've posted this in the correct place.
The last few weeks I've had a dull ache in my left calf while jogging, which I really could not pin point to a specific local in my calf. After playing a game of softball yesterday the upper portion of my calf (close to my knee) is a bit swollen and aches pretty bad. The top right portion of my left calf is sore to the touch, I mean very tender! I also cant seem to flex my calf muscle...not nearly as much as I can my right. From time to time when I do try to flex my claf muscle I feel a strange pop somewhere behind the kneww and down a bit. While sitting still there is a slight ache and throbbing, but most of the discomfort happens when I stand up and start walking around. I've actually never felt pain like this before. Do I need running new shoes? Does this sound more like a sports related injury and should I give it a few days before contacting my Dr.?
Thanks for the help!
