I knew I had pulled it.

Next morning, the calf has tightened up significantly and I have a pronounced limp.
It looks like I will be watching movies all weekend.

There is no visible sign of any injury.
No swelling. No discoloration.
I assume this is a mild tear.

Anyone ever do this? Is this serious?
What can I expect?
Will I be able to work on Monday?
Sounds exactly what I had in both calfs at different times, especially the "Pop". Look up ruptured Plantaris muscle, that is what my Dr. said I had. It is terrible, doesn't go away for months, sorry just telling you the straight, but now all is well.
