Really Sore calf muscles?


Hi all,

I woke up yesterday morning with horrendous legs cramps - I thought I was paralysed! - but ever since then I have had very sore calf muscles which is making it difficult for me to walk!

It feels like ive been on a 20 mile run but I havent done anything! - I was wondering if the 2 are linked?

could the fact that I had severe cramp yesterday mornign subsequently cause really sore calf muscles? (but its not cramp!)

I was woken up with severe cramps in my right leg the other morning and it took a good few days for the pain in my calf to go away - like you say, it was walking that was painful for me too. Not sure about both legs though - it might be best to get it checked if you're worried. I suppose a DVT would be a possible serious cause, but I think you would usually get swelling with that, as well as pain

if it was a really bad cramp...then it will take a few days for pain to go away...i had one of these nasty cramps on tuesday morning...n yesterday morning it was still aching n sometimes hurt wen walking...but seems to have calmed down today...i normally massage my calf as soon as i get a cramp..bt cudnt that particular morning as i had pins n needles in my hands!!...so i think the fact that i left in a cramp position for quite abit of time..might hav caused my pain to last longer than usual..

could it be that? xx

I had really bad cramp one morning and i was so worried as the day earlier we had travelled from Manchester to Surrey and i thought it may have been DVT, the pain was horrible and my calf was sore a few days after but started to ease. Since then I’ve had a few cramps but this was the worse by far. I'm sure you will be fine but get it checked if you are concerned x

I'm still sore on my left calf after a cramp 2 nights ago. I find the following helps, I apply some heat to it via one of those microwave packs ( I use an old sock and put some rice in it). After about 10 mins the muscles are a bit less tight, and I massage it, or get OH to do it if he's nice enough. Sometimes if its still really sore, I apply some deep heat cream to it while I am massaging.
