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.
