I'm not sure if it's just a pull or torn muscle but yesterday when I was walking down some stairs at work I got this shooting burning pain in my calf( in the back of leg between my foot and knee)when I was stepping down. Went to work today but had to leave because I can't walk right. There is a bruise at the bottom where the muscle starts.
GRRR.... Any advice or tips??I don't have time for this!!!!
Stacie and WriteAngled) Thanks! On my way to the freezer now! And the bandage sounds like a good idea. Cagsil) How would I know the difference? It felt like a hot bullet went in the back of my leg... I may need a trip to the dr.....sigh....
Hey Dorsi, I would have it checked out to ensure more damage was not done than you think. I always say it's better to be safe than sorry. I can understand about visiting doctors, especially since most of them are nothing but a pain in the a$$.
But, at least an x-ray would be able to tell the difference. If you actually torn it, then I don't think you would be able to put any pressure on it at all versus a pulled muscle is something you can limp upon carefully.
