I felt a snap in my calf

I work out regularly and was recently taking a step aerobic class. About half way through, my calf muscle seemed tight. I stretched it out and started back with the aerobics. Shortly after, I felt a "snap" in my calf (like a rubber band snapping)I couldn't stand on the leg, as it felt like it was severely cramping up. I was off it two days before heading to the doctor. I could walk almost normally after about a week (a little limp); however, then the pain shifted from the middle to the top of my calf and standing on it was painful. It has been a month. I am scheduled to see an orthopedic doctor; however, I am DYING to get out and run again. I just have no idea what it might be or what to expect........Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions?????
