Deep mid calf pain, not shin!
I have read much about compartment syndrome, and a few weeks ago, thought I had it. Soreness in front of calves, some numbness when running. So, I took 5 days off, and came back slowly with lots of rest days. The pain has now shifted!
I have the deepest pain right in the middle back of my calf. It seems to respond to ice, but does not like any weight applied (ie: walking or running). I have searched high and low for similar problems, but none seem to match.
A lttle more info: this is deep pain in the back mid calf, downhills are worse than uphills. Does not respond to ibuprofen or asprin. Ice helpful for short term only.
