For the past few weeks by left calf has felt tight but these past few days it is worse it the top side of my calf about 2 inches below side of knee it's quite sore to walk today and feels really tight and knotty. I've had sports massage stretches twice a day and used foam roller but nothing helps?any one know what is wrong?

Nope, amongst my various calf issues that is one I have avoided (so far :-o), but I thought I'd give your question a bump.

Baffled by mine - I may have warmed up and have been running some time/distance - but if I try to increase pace the (same) calf cramps up. Just a little - with a little stretching I can jog slowly but it will be sore for rest of the day

Could be tightness in your back coming down through the hips and hamstrings then presenting in the calf. Really painful deep tissue massage may help - but in your pelvis, hip, itb and ham before they work on the calf itself.

Or it might be something totally different...

Does it disappear once you warmed up?

Got something to say?
