    torn calf muscle?
    An_251273 posted:
    I banged my calf muscle really hard on the motorcycle and that was the worst pain I had ever felt. I dropped down to the floor and I couldn't walk on it and it bruised up and it started swelling up. The next day it felt a little bit better but I see more bruising and purple marks below the ankle on both sides. Did I tear something and what do I do to remedy this. Its feeling better the 2nd day but just dont know what this is?
