Customer Question

Two & half weeks ago Injured my right calf while playing an eighth basketball game. I'm 59 years old, after 7th game felt burning, cramp like pain. Was going to leave but college kids asked if I could play one last game. As I darted for loose ball I felt like someone kicked my rt calf. Could not continue. I'm limping around. I have dark bruise marks around my right ankle & side of my foot. Ankle still swollen as I need to walk around during work.
Q: What injury do I have? How should I treat it?

Sounds like you probably tore your calf muscle or maybe your achilles tendon

You need to see your primary care doctor right away and probably need an MRI of the leg.
