The pain got better for about 5 days but since about ten days ago the pain has yoyo'd about a certain plateau. It started while jogging two Sundays ago, my GP diagnosed the pain the day after as compartment syndrome, said I shouldn't jog on it for a couple of weeks but here I am nearly two weeks over and not much better. I am going in again on Monday but was wondering if it could be a small fracture.
The pain is in my lower left leg, not the topside of the shin, but the bone immediately under the calf muscle. Flexing the muscle is mostly painless, "spinning" rotating the foot etc is fine. Resting it is sometimes as painful as walking, and putting pressure on the bone from the outside left is painful. Anywho, sucks a lot, I stopped biking to school for the two weeks but I do have to do a fair amount of walking between classes but I assume that isn't enough to exasperate compartment syndrome this badly? Either way thanks in advance for any help.
