Sore Calf Muscles for no reason

Sportspeople should be on their guard if they experience calf muscle soreness or a swollen calf for no reason.

If they do they should check for the symptoms above.

A swollen calf muscle combined with pain in the calf muscle obviously fits well with torn calf muscle symptoms see  ruptured calf muscle symptoms.

However if you can’t remember doing anything to cause the calf muscle pain then it is less likely to be a calf strain or tear.

In addition are any of the following factors relevant?

  • Obesity

  • Recent childbirth
  • Being at very high altitude, greater than 14,000 feet
  • Use of estrogen replacement (hormone therapy, or HT) or birth control pills
