For the last two years I've had calf problems from running , forcing me
to stop for two or three weeks at a time. I 've tried stretching, heel
inserts, new shoes etc. When the injury occurs there is no swelling, reddness, or black and blue coloration. I'am a 41 year old male 5' 11" and weight about 187lbs I run 18 to 20 miles per week at 8:00 min/mile. What could be causing this problem, stress fractures ??
Paul - so many things could cause this problem...stress fractures are a possibility, but they usually are shin splints related.You might have a tendency to run on your toes and strain your soleus or gastrocs. Otherwise, I need more info!
