- The pain orginally, 1 year ago, was in both the heel and calf, and now primarily in the calf. Each time i reinjure, it feels like a rubberband has snapped.
- Physical therapy, No, was only authorized 6 sessions
- Diabetic, no
- Blood tests, not in the past 2 years
I am at the point where i am frustrated, because every time i try to exercise, i reinjure the same calf, even after stretching for 30 minutes. I am now about 30 lbs over my ideal weight of 135 (I am 5'3), and my BMI has now reached 31.1. I did well for about 2 months, where I walked 3-5 times a week, with no injury. I have even purchased new running shoes to ensure i have proper support. My increasing age, I'm certain, is not helping matters. I was able to stay in shape with softball, volleyball, racquetball and jogging, and for the past year, i have attempted only to have my calf snap like a rubber band.
I play softball with a doctor, and he has stated that each time the muscle tries to repair, a calcium surrounds the muscle, and i believe he says that it is snapping each time i try to use that muscle. I still feel i have many years left to play sports and want to desperately to ensure heart health and weight satisfaction.
