Re: Calf tear

I have torn my calf a little, it felt just like a hadnt worked the muscle the next day, i never felt anyhting the day of. It was filled with lactic acid and remained that way for a couple of days, which i took of all excersise. i am a competitive skier, so after the storm i rode a bit, the calf doesnt so much hurt but it is burning. like hot burning sensation. its bizarre, i have never had this in all the injuries i have taken over the years. the burn is topical and even in the shower it is almost too much. any ideas? i have been rubbing analgesic, arnica and anti inflammatory on it, but this weird burning sensation is starting to weird me out. any suggestions? pip.
