Okay guys I need help. About 4 days ago I was playing football and  I apparently recieved a calf injury I think? I was fine and continued to play the game as there was no intial pain...however I noticed weakness in my right calf area. I went home showered and went to sleep. On waking up, I saw no bruising....minor swelling if any, but some stiffness. What I did notice was while it didn't cause any major discomfort to touch, there was a specfic spot near center of my calf that did have a dull pain...a little sharper when contracted. At first I couldn't bear much weight as I rose on my tippy toes, but after some compression and ice...I feel stronger everyday...in fact the only pain is still in that spot in my calf. there is no bruising or discoloration, but just a small bit of pain when i rise on my tippy toes.. What exactly do you think is going on??
