Hello fellow-runners.
Anyone ever had one of their calves get bigger than the other? I've had a medical check-up and there's nothing amiss, but a friend in a running club says this is quite common amongst runners. thanks.

Presumably you were checked out for DVT? I get tight calves but not noticed them swelling up. Sometimes runners can suffer with compartment syndrome where the muscles get too tight for the muscle sheaf. Are you stretching out your calves?

If it continues to be a problem I would get it checked out by a decent sports physio.

Thanks for your help

Thanks for the replies. I had a full scan and specalist examination but all was OK - no DVT. Recently had a generall healthcheck and Dr. thinks leg OK, but there is some muscle wastage in the other leg - (never thought of that) due to knee injury in car accident last year. Thanks again - & all the best.:)
