Pain in Calf

I was doing deep front squats today and I started developing a pain in my calf. The pain starts at about the head of the fibula and goes down about five inches. It feels like it runs right behind the fibula. It only hurts coming out of the hole during the squat and it feels better if I massage it and stretch. My first thought was that I strained my soleus, but I’m not sure.

For treatment I was going to take some Ibuprofin, stretch, and reduce the weight on my next couple of leg workouts.

Anyone else have any ideas or input?
