I sent a post a while ago and i did get a few good answers. I have still got that problem with my legs its just come back and dont no what it is.

When i go for a run i stretch before and after and i feel no pains during the run. Its about 1-2 hours after the run where the muscles at the back of my legs tighten up. I will still have this pain for about 3 days before i can run again. If anyone no's what it is and how to stop this pain from happening it would help.

Dont say i need to rest the last post i sent was mostly get rest, which i did for 2 weeks!

Its what terry john from commando on the frontline had, its where the muscles in your legs tighten up when you run, should look it up and i'd get myself to the doctors mate, just to be on the safe side.

Go to a pyhsio. Look for a good one, £30 is much well spent, compared to getting diagnosed online. Not having a go mate,no one injury is the same as the next. I have real bad things going on with my legs,had scans,orthotics etc and i know from experience,dont go on what people tell you (Freinds/forums etc) as much as they might be trying to help,by just saying "Cool down", although its good advice,you may still have a problem that your not addressing.

Hope it gets better

Good advice above, go and see a physio who should be able to help. My 2pence worth, is after your run, properly stretch your big muscles as if your going on the run again, spend about 15mins doing this, then also have a light jog and then have another stretch, then go and have a freezing cold shower which will close pours, stop the sweating and itching. If you keep doing that and also see the physio to see if theres any underlining problem then you should be onto a winner. Just seems you suffer from a big build up of lactic acid.

Just sounds like DOMS(delayed onset muscle soreness)really, which is common after working out. It sounds pretty extreme though if it comes on that quickly.

How long have you been training?

Otherwise, ditto to the others, go to the specialist.

Try this. When you get back from your run, as stated above, make sure you cool down.
Don't have a hot shower as this will cause the muscle to swell. Take a luke warm shower.
Take an ibuprofen and apply ice patches to the area for 20 minutes. Ibuprofen and ice will prevent swelling and ease any pain.

I'd still go and see a physio.

Are you running on roads? Have you bought yourself running shoes for your specific foot type?
