Hi,

The stiffness in the calf muscles can be due to lack of physical activity or even due to some degree of dehydration and lack of electrolytes.
I would suggest you to do mild stretching exercises of the calf muscle and maintain adequate fluid intake throughout the day and see if it helps. Keep us posted!

pls help me i am suffering from calf stiffness,pain,big size (as compared to body),some one told to excercise such as skipping but when i performed my calf turened out more stiff,tight,big size even after one minute of skipping i felt i skipped for an hour. I used to drink 7-8 litre of water every day. Stiffness is much more in deep viens. My CPK nac test for heart is good,my skin & hair are good so no hypothyroid. Problem increases whenever i am under stress.
I am suffring this problem for last 12 years its like permanent cramps in calf muscle..I am NOT suffering from diabeties,heart problem,wht 75kg height 5.10". some time massage gives me some relax.i did every thing like streching,applying ice,some time applying heat, drinking fluids ,biggest problem is that
even i did not excercise for three years but problem is same,is this related to Hypertonicity,
glycogen storage disease (GSD) or PVD or something else.Excercise has very little effect on my cramps

With your height your weight does not seem to be overweight. You are in normal BMI ranges. You may reduce 5 kgs and for which you can do gradually over a period of time for 6 months.
Check your diet with a dietician and plan a neat diet chart, avoid all foods which contain calories, sweets, deep fries. You can do stess free exercises like walking, swimming etc. Take care!
