hi everybody...
both of the inside of my calf muscles right behind the shin bone are aching... after i play basketball & jog in place along with jumpin jacks ... i just started exercising every day about month ago, this pain has been occurring for about 3 weeks now... i have not exercised on a regular basis for years ...
so i stopped doing all exercise for a while but the problems still there, sometimes i get a pain just from walking alot
any suggestions would be great as far as stretches or cures
Thanks in advance

hey sorry to hear about that why not try some leg stretching, standing straight put one leg forward and the other leg behind it but further back (if you know what i mean) and stretch you should feel a pulling feeling on your calf do this for about 5 min each leg and it should start to ease up the more times you do it, it worked for me hope it helps Jenny

The self injury forum is for people who intentionally injure themselves. We don't have a specific forum for muscle pain, but I believe you will get more answers in the "Muscular and Nerve Disorders" forum. I'm going to move it there for you.
