Pulled a lower left calf muscle a 2 or 3 months ago. I don't run much for 2 or 3 weeks but it keeps coming back. Icing now and maybe IBprofin?

In brief: Pulled Calf Muscle

I have attached a video on the 3 stretches to do.
Just never push through pain and do 5 times a day. With these injuries, getting some deep tissue massage from a PT can be the crucial cure. The PT will also be able to tell you if any imaging should be done. Good Luck. Dr Rich Blake https://youtu.be/0eAqJ4-oKTM
