Training for my 4th marathon. Male, age 49. Excellent health. Have a nagging problem with my right calf. When I run, get mild/aggravating pain deep in my right calf. Feels like a numbness within the calf, sometimes momentarily it even feels I lose "support" from the calf muscle. The mild pain persists when I run... doesn't stop me from running, but it's always there. I've taken days off, but the pain/numbness is there when I return to running. Any diagnosis/recommended treatment would be greatly appreciated.
