I over used the calf muscles after being ill period of time.

Customer Question

I over used the calf muscles after being ill for along period of time. They then became hard as rocks for awhile. My calves now burn and the muscles contract every time I sleep. It excruciating. The doctors I have seen seem to dimiss it. I can hardly tolerate it anymore. I am also trying to get a nerve stimulator removed which is painful. I found out after having it inserted I didn't even need it. Between both issues it's hard to function. I am in constant severe pain. What should I do about my calves. I continue to try and stretch them but non- use of them as stated earlier cause severe burning. Please help me if you can. Thank you, Bonny

Hi Bonny
First important question--did you have Doppler venous flow studies to look for clots?
