I have my first "sports" injury in a very long time and I don't even know how it happened. On Saturday when we did our Chilly Chili Run, my calves hurt a bit after only a very short time, but I didn't think anything of it.
Last night, as I was putting some things into my van, I leaned over the front seat and felt a *pop, pop* in my left calf followed by immense pain. I drove home and my dear husband helped me get inside. I cannot put any pressure on my leg without excruciating pain. I've had it wrapped and elevated all night and iced off and on. I've taken pain reliever, but it doesn't seem to help.
Any great suggestions? It's hard being laid up with little boys around. My hero of a husband has been amazing, running to the store, finding all the things I need, and even taking time off of work to get the boys to their appointment.
What do you do to recover from your injuries?
