My injury first started when I was playing volleyball in college. I was at a tournament, when I took off my knee pad I noticed that my left calf was swollen, without pain. After that I had pain inmy calf but never swelling. I had knots in my muscle and could not stretch. Once my calf was aggrivated it stayed aggrivated and got worse with pain in my entire calf and radiating pain up and down my shin bone. I could take 5-6 Advil and be able to make it trought a tournament or practice. The athletic trainers tried everything they could think of. I rested it and did nothing with my legs for two-three months but the pain came back when I played again. If I soaked in an ice bath for 20 minuted and took advil I coudl usually make it through without pain but I had to have not aggrivated it eariler inthe day. They did tests for compartment symdrome and took xrays of my knee and found nothing. This started 10 years ago and even now if I play volleyball aggressively I cannot walk without pain for a few days.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
