On Wednesday I was playing footy at school when I got tackled... as you do. I'm not entirely sure if someone put their knee into the back of my leg or not, but when I got up and went to chase after the ball I immediately felt some really sharp pain in the back of my leg, just behind/below the knee. Tried to keep playing, but I couldn't run. I later found that I couldn't really put my heel down and straighten my leg... so my walking is all messed up. Yesterday I went to a doctor who told me i've probably torn my calf, and suggested I have an ultrasound when possible. My question is - is it normal that I can put all my weight on the front of my foot without any pain? It seems a little odd to me. DISCLAIMER: It's not that I don't believe my doctor, I just wanted to know if this was normal. Also, I know you aren't all doctors, and you can't actually see the leg etc. Just curious.
