Calf Problem

Post by Ben Mart » Sun, 13 Oct 1991 04:10:53


1) Pain in my left leg behind the knee after running or biking.
Particularly noticeable when climbing steps.  If I don't move it, it
doesn't hurt.  If I sit down and put my left foot flat on the ground
and try to slide my foot back (with the friction of the floor holding
it in place) that hurts quite a bit.

2) Spot pain if I apply pressure behind my knee at the outer head of the
gastrocnemius or maybe it's on the popliteus.  It feels like it's deep
in there.

Any diagnostic guesses?  Any therapeutic advice?
