Just wondering if anyone can shed any light on this...
I'm a 36 year old man, in reasonable shape, 6ft 1 and I have a fairly sedentary office job although I walk 2 miles a day to the station and back.
For the last 6-9 months I have been experiencing pain in my right calf muscle. I feels really tight, like the begonning of a cramp, and is worse if i have been resting or sitting and then set off walking. It eases after 10 mins or so normally although sometimes persists. It isn't debilitating pain, probably akin to a lightly pulled muscle or like really sore muscles after am work out. But it is just always there so am wondering if it is soemthing that will ever go.
I go to the gym a couple of times a week and use the rowing machine but I don't do any running or anything else that would be aggravating it. I maybe need to stretch it more and it's just a sign of getting old but it just seems odd that it is in one leg only. I thought it may be to do with wearing formal leather shoes when i have always previously been in casual shoes and trainers (changed job last year)?
Anyone with any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I will go to my GP but from experience with my GP he will just say to take ibruprofen and rest it so it would be good to take some ideas to him as he isn't exactly dynamic in his thinking.
