I felt a snap in my calf

(2 discussions)

I work out regularly and was recently taking a step aerobic class. About half way through, my calf muscle seemed tight.
I stretched it out and started back with the aerobics.
Shortly after, I felt a “snap” in my calf (like a rubber band snapping)I couldn’t stand on the leg, as it felt like it was severely cramping up.
I was off it two days before heading to the doctor.
I could walk almost normally after about a week (a little limp) however, then the pain shifted from the middle to the top of my calf and standing on it was painful.
It has been a month.
I am scheduled to see an orthopedic doctor however, I am DYING to get out and run again.
I just have no idea what it might be or what to expect……..Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions?????

    Did you ever find out what it was and how long did it take you to get better. I just had the same thing happen to me last night and it is killing me to not be able to go to the gym and work out. I too was in a step class when this happened and I felt a snap or pop too. Now it is very sore and hard to walk. Let me know if you get this and what you found out.
