Why do my calves ach/hurt


Posted by n t.

My husband is a mechanic and works on large trucks on a cement floor.  He also opperates large equipment ie backhoes, graders, dozers.

In the past 9 mo. he has been experiencing calf pain in both legs.  We have tried a muscle relaxer pricption and the chriopractor. 

Sometimes it is so bad that he has to stop and sit awhile before he can walk.

 At night we have been rubbing them with bengay, by morning it is tolerable.

 Why do they hurt and what can we do about it?
