Calf pain: How often are you doing your exercises? Do you maintain a consistent schedule or a sporadic one? Do you stretch before you run? You might start slow and run a short distance while allowing your body to get use to the work out. As time passes, you can start increasing the distance and speed as well.
Several Options...: "shin splint" typically refers to pain on the front of the lower leg, but can present in the back. Pain in this area may come from medial tibial stress syndrome (mtss), stress fractures, or compartment syndrome. Identifying the underlying reason for your pain can then help with a specific plan of care. Treatments usually consist of rest, stretching, ice, massage, or orthotics. (drmarkgalland. Com).
Ice, rest, stretch: Usually this problem is secondary to running on a hard surface or repetitive activity. Treatment is ice massage, nsaids, rest and stretching. Also your running shoes lose their cushioning function before they wear out visually. So if you run on a regular basis, replace your shoes every 6-8 months.

Shoes: First thing is to take a really good look at your shoes. They should be fitted to your feet with good arch support. Have someone watch you run. Does one foot strike differently than the other? Does one toe point at a different angle than the other? Have someone measure your leg length. Is one leg longer than the other? Custom orthotics can help with many of these types of problems.

Strain/partial tear: Calf swelling and pain can often be due to local trauma- either a significant strain or actual partial muscle tear. This allows for local bleeding or hematoma formation within the injured muscle. Partial tears of the gastrocnemius (medial/inside head) are common injuries that may take weeks to resolve with rest, ice, elevation and ace wrap compression as the standard treatment.

Don't equivocate.: Calf pain is a concern because of the possibility of a potential blood clot in the deep veins in the calf area. A failure to recognize or treat it quickly could be disastrous. Having said that, the potential seriousness necessitates that you have it evaluated and quickly. If the calf is free of phlebitis and/or clot, then you can move on to other non life threatening conditions.
