    Calf Cramp

    Good Afternoon,

    I had a calf cramp for about 3 days. Started while on the treadmill and stayed the same no matter how much I stretched it.
    Today walking down stairs, I felt a tearing pain in my calf, and the pain dropped to just above my Achilles tendon in the back of my foot.

    The cramp pain was about a 4 (1-10) - the ankle pain is about a 1.5.

    At first I thought muscle tear, but there is no associated pain in my calf anymore.

    Anyone ever have something like this?

    I assume you went to a doctor then? If not, I would schedule an appointment asap.

    I hope this helps

    Experience has taught me that cramps in general are caused by insufficient amounts of Magnesium and calcium.
    Emergen -C packets help tremendously because of the electrolytes.
