Burning calf muscle is it normal?

Postby chubbywife79 » Sun Nov 25, 2007 7:14 pm

I'm just wondering if it normal to have burning calf muscle when your exercising?

I went to take my dog for walk just a minute ago and about 15 minutes into it my calves started burning.

Thanks in advance

its normal for muscles to burn :) theres a logical reason behind it, i think they release some kind of chemical

Depends what kind of burn it is though.. you might need new/better shoes? Unless you're going at a pretty decent pace with the walking, you probably shouldn't be feeling a burning.

Is it like a tight cramping sensation? It seems a little early for burning muscles after only 15 minutes... sometimes calf pain on walking can be a sign of blocked arteries in the legs. Can be an early warning sign of vascular disease - which would mean higher risk of stroke, heart attack etc. Don't wanna scare you, but if it keeps happening, I'd recommend you see your doctor just to get everything checked out!

I find I get this when I walk all the time and sometimes when I run. I have rather tight claf muscles so if I don't stretch them out this happens more often. Maybe try stretching them more often.
