Last year I was on the outdoor track team with no problems. After summer was over I decided to join the cross country team. I did not run over the summer, but did swim occasionaly with no problems. Since starting to run, I got up to 3 miles and then excurtiating pain started in my calves. Once I stopped and streched they were ok, but once I started again pain was back. So I stopped running but still found my calves were hurting even walking, sitting. Long story short, I was diagnosed with posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, I had already purchased a pair of running shoes with special made inserts because I walked on the inside of my feet. This helped my feet, not my calves. I then had a compartment sydrome test done, MRI of my legs, was checked for any pinched nerves by a specialist, had an ultra scan of the blood flow going through my legs, All came back negative. I just went to the nerve dr. and had to run about 10 minutes, I forgot to strectch after words and the next day I could barely walk. The doctors are unable to find out why my calves hurt me. Anyone have any ideas what might be the cause? My blood work came back looking great - no deficiency's. It's been almost a year of tests and no one can figure it out. Help anyone??
