Ache in upper calf?
« on: June 29, 2010, 06:18:27 AM »
For about the past 6-7 hours I've had a constant annoying ache in my right upper calf, on the inside. I didn't injure it but was mostly on my feet all day at work, as usual (some sitting).

53-year-old female, 50 lbs overweight, have had a variety of painful "catches" in my knees over the years, sometimes painful spells above or below the knee that resolve over a couple days at most, usually.

But this constant calf ache is new. Doesn't matter whether I'm standing or lying.

Yeah... I need to see the knee doctor, never did because the various episodes of pain or catching go away soon and never seem exactly the same, and my experience with doctors tells me they never really find anything wrong.

But does this calf pain sound familiar to anyone? Is there a particular muscle or tendon that this might be?

Thanks much,
