I need some help. Since going back to work after the flu (where let's face it...I laid down ALL day) I am hurting. My calves are so tight I can hardly get in and out of the shower. I can lift my legs maybe 6" from the floor. I have to lean to get out of the shower that has a 12" tall side. I have tried stretches and it is not working. After I stretch and take a step, my calves go right back to screaming at me with tightness. How do I get them to loosen? Shoulders: Directly to the left of my shoulder blade, I have a muscle that is either spasming or is pulled or something. It is screaming at me. I can't lift anything on that side. Even bending over is excrutiating! What the heck did I do?! My right side has nothing wrong with it at all! I am stronger on my left side than my right side. How do I get it to loosen? I can literally feel it tighten each time I try to lift something. My poor pizza is on the ground thanks to it... My neck doesn't hurt. The arch of my foot is grumbling at me also. Any idea on how to get these muscles to calm the heck down?
