If there is back pain as well consider obtaining a MRI of the ls spine to evaluate further. If not, focus on stretching and physical therapy. ...Read more

Was walking fast in the rain, stepped down and felt pop in calf muscle. It hurt a lot last night, I could walk but iced and took IB. Foot Tingling.

Was walking fast in the rain, stepped down and felt pop in calf muscle. It hurt a lot last night, I could walk but iced and took IB. Foot Tingling.

Partial tear: Usually this history means a partial tear of one the calf muscles. The medial head of the gastrocnemius is the most common. Tingling may just be from some swelling around the nerve. I expect that to resolve within a few days. Rest, ice a calf sleeve and wearing supportive shoes with heels should all help you. Don't stretch it. Ibuprofen optional. Healing usually in 2-6 weeks. ...Read more

Not likely: Given your history of working your biceps today, and you're 27, it's not likely that it's your heart. If you are very concerned, though, this is something that would have to be evaluated in person. Best of luck! ...Read more

Not always EZ 2 fix.: I'm afraid that finding the cause for your calf tightness is not as easy as one would think. There are a whole lot of thoughts as to the cause of this problem. Included reasons include muscle or nerve injury, muscle fatigue , spinal stenosis, certain types of medications and estrogen, just to name a few. The problem is that there are as many potential solutions as there are potential causes. ...Read more

Yesterday morning i stretched my arms up and immediately felt extreme pain on left side mid back. Strained muscle? Still hurts often going into arm?

Yesterday morning i stretched my arms up and immediately felt extreme pain on left side mid back. Strained muscle? Still hurts often going into arm?

Probably not muscle: It is unlikely that a muscle strain is causing radiating arm pain. The pain description you have given is more consistent with a cervical spine (neck) issue. Fortunately, it is very acute and likely to improve spontaneously. You can take over-the-counter medications and apply heat or ice. If the symptoms persist, worsen or become disabling, see your physician for more testing and treatment. ...Read more

Blood clot?: Swelling of one leg only could represent a blood clot, which in some instances can break off, and clog the blood flow from the heart to the lung. Small clots are ok, but large clots can cause instant death. If this is new, seek medical attention right away. May need an ultrasound of the leg to make this determination. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I was doing the hamstring leg curl exercise when suddenly I felt a sharp pain near my groin area. It almost felt like testicular pain. Is it sciatica?

I was doing the hamstring leg curl exercise when suddenly I felt a sharp pain near my groin area. It almost felt like testicular pain. Is it sciatica?

More like Groinatica: You likely stretched your inguinal ligament OR you may have stretched one of your upper lumbar nerves in the that can shoot pain into that area due to the way you were doing the exercise. You may need REST & to back off of the weights. Go LIGHT coming back (real light), ramp up to heavier weights slowly to avoid the same injury. Time to consolidate something like this can be SEVERAL WEEKS. ...Read more
