Ive apparentley torn my calf muscle whilst playing football last friday......(at 37 im still clinging to my footie playing days)......as i was running i felt a pop in my calf and that was it.........Saturday morning it felt so bad i went to A&E as i was worried it was something more serious.....i was just examined (no scan etc)....was told id propably torn my calf muscle and it will heal itself in 6 to 8 weeks..
Has anyone else done this......and how long before i can at least jog ( footie can wait) ....im 3 days on now and i m suprised how quickly its settled...i can walk now but its still feels like ive got a cut on the back of my leg.......but from saturday to now .....its improved much more than i imagined so at this rate i cant see me been out for 8 weeks...can i?
My husband tore his calf muscle and he was out of action for a few months. May be worth visiting a sports physio as they will be more helpful than A&E.
It really depends how bad the tear was.
