I tore my Gastrocnemius muscle and I was just wondering about how long it would take before I could have full mobility of my leg again?

I tore my Gastrocnemius muscle and I was just wondering about how long it would take before I could have full mobility of my leg again?

That hurts!!: If it's for sure that muscle, then a few weeks. You'll know because it will be feeling a lot better, especially when you stand on your toes.When it's feeling a little better, very gentle stretching will help it heal without getting too stiff. if you tore it way down by your heel, the tendon may be involved and that will need more care. Tendons heal more slowly. Motrin and icing will help too. ...Read more

If you are active, like an athlete, sweating and the resulting fluid loss is #1 cause of muscle cramps. You need to hydrate!! If recurrent pulls occur in odd places, visit the nearest healthcare professional for attention! ...Read more

hydrochlorothiaz?

Possibly: Very low potassium (generally <2.0) can cause those symptoms, also called periodic paralysis, but hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) generally doesn't cause such profound fall in potassium so it's more likely that something else is going on. ...Read more
