  • I've had the same thing for about six months. The calf pain turned into sciatica. I could not sit or drive and I was in agony. I tried the chiropractor and medical massage, which helped. Finally, I went to a sports med clinic for physical therapy. They do manual manipulation and dry needling, and several other things. After two visits, the sciatica is gone and I can now sit. My calf pain is still there, but they tell me this is all connected, so I'm still going. Mine was caused by excessive walking and overuse, so you might have the same problem.
