Hey all. I'm new to this. Trying to build myself up from scratch as I have disc bulge and sciatica. Advised to get myself strong by my physio. Only 4 wks in and done something to my right calf running. Couldn't walk on it for days. 2wks later still hobbling on it!! Hurts to touch..no bruising tho. Totally gutted as I feel I've gone back 10 steps!!! Not done a thing for 2wks and eating like shit again!!! Anyone ever had this injury before?? Would really appreciate some advice. Thank u xx

Would highly recommend getting an MRI on it just so you know the extent of the damage that could possibly be present.

I had a calf strain. Look up the symptoms of that and see if they fit? Either way you should go to a doctor and get it looked at
