Hello doctor,

I used to run about five km and do cycling about 6 km. I got a calf pain six months ago, though it would get normal in a few days, the pain persists, the MRI shows nothing. The doctors tell everything is fine, but the pain is too much, could not even walk for a few mins continuously. The pain is exactly on the outer part of the left calf muscle where I could feel it in a particular position like a small line. But the sickness spreads over the entire calf.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It would be nice if you can share the MRI reports with us so we can comment accurately. In general, without the MRI, I suspect this to be a muscle injury, which is healing slowly. As MRI too have limitations, we have to follow the clinical signs and symptoms and treat according to the clinical symptoms.

This sounds to me as a muscle injury, due to which there is a muscle imbalance. I will advise undergoing muscle re-education, and muscle balance board training, which can help correct the actual action of the muscle and a proper torque can be applied with the contraction of the muscles. Later a graded practice of the lower limb will be good. If the nature of the pain is burning, tingling, radiating, and numbing, etc., that we may have to look out for any nerve root entrapment and treat accordingly. Please share the MRI reports if possible.
