About two weeks ago after squatting (I think), I started to get horizontal pain in my right calf about 4" above the heel. The more I walked, the worse it got. 2 Advil completely removed any and all pain. I had no idea why it hurt there, so I thought nothing of it.
Later, I pressed up and down the calf to see if it was tender anywhere, and I found tenderness higher up in the calf on the outside.
I’ve been taking advil with each meal for a week or so now, but the pain has now appeared in my other leg, in the same place! I haven’t squatted since.
Someone said it might be a blood clot, but I’m 20, healthy, and I doubt there is a bloot clot in both legs, in the same place, at the same time. Lately though, I have been doing marathon study sessions for midterms where I sit for long periods of time.
Any advice/helpful info I could provide? This shit is getting annoying and I’m about to just go squat on advil before I go crazy from no lifting
Also, I have never had any pain below the knee in my life. My calves are exceptionally well-developed and I wear low-top chucks almost everywhere.
