Sore upper back left calf.Felt it when I tried stretching my legs this morning about 12hrs ago.Could it be just muscle strain or smthing more serious?

Most likely strain: Your symptoms are mostly a strain. I would recommend watching it to see if it improves since the symptoms started less than 24 hours ago. More history needs to be known in order to say for sure if this could be something more serious. If you're really concerned or have other medical problems, I recommend you see your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more

Can you tell me about if the weight of performing deadlifts and squats will worsen a calf strain, even though there's no direct stretching of the muscle?

Can you tell me about if the weight of performing deadlifts and squats will worsen a calf strain, even though there's no direct stretching of the muscle?

The calf muscles: still have to work even though you may not be stretching them,during the squats and deadlifts. Generally it is good idea to rest for a while, to give time for the strained muscle to heal, before starting the work out routine again, because you can keep aggravating the injured muscle repeatedly and prolong the recovery and delay the healing. Good luck ...Read more

Hello: If : Hello: if you are having pain still, it is not easy to sort out whether the pain is coming from muscle strain or a fracture here. The location (right side of right foot, more along the outside) is concerning, in that it is an area we orthopedists should always be on a lookout for a fracture, most likely on the fifth metatarsal. But, certainly, a bad muscle strain can hurt just the same. I do believe in this case a visit to your orthopedist can sort this out, which is important unless your symptoms suddenly vanished. Even if the chance of such a fracture is lower than the more common muscle strain, given that the consequences of a delayed diagnosis of a foot fracture can be very undesirable, and that the proper muscle strain treatments and fracture treatments are vastly different, i would recommend that you have your foot examined and x-rayed. Hope this helps! sincerely, jim hsu, md seattle, wa. ...Read more
