I developed pain in my right leg playing tennis in high school about 5 years ago. I completely overused my right leg. When I played regular basketball in college, my right leg muscles were often stiff at the end. Warm showers never helped, but ice packs kind of did. I also remember having worse pain at the end of a day where I was sitting in front of a computer for the most part (not being physically active). The pain is in both my calf and my thigh (my hamstring i think), calf being worse.
Despite the pain, I've been told that my right calf is bigger than my left, and when skiing, I can tell that I am able to put more weight on my right because it is stronger.
I think, because of my overuse from tennis, my right leg muscles became stronger but also became 'permanently tight'.
So, unintentionally, I try to keep weight off of my right leg, and as a result I find myself kind of hobbling on my left leg sometimes, and I've been told that I walk with a limp.
Since I've had this problem for so long, I can see thats its never going to heal on its own. Please help!
