    Loads of lactic acid in my calves

    Sometimes when i walk for about 2 mins i immediately get lactic acid in my calf muscles and they feel like i've just run a mile or two. the rest of my body feels perfectly fine, i'm not tired at all, my breathing and heartbeat are normal - literally just my calves are aching like hell. i don't feel much pressure in my knees, ankles or feet. i also get the dying urge to urinate (even if i've just been to the toilet). it feels like there's loads of fluid and **** (?) trapped in my legs that needs to be 'purged', if you like.

    usually it's the left calf muscle that feels this pain immediately and the right one takes quite a while to start hurting.

    i have no idea where this problem arises from; it comes and goes - sometimes staying for about a month. frankly it can make my life hell because it means i can barely walk anywhere without suffering and let's not even talk about how it feels to run. the other week i walked for about 3 hours and felt some mild lactic acid in my legs, but for the past four days i can barely manage 2 mins.

    i've done a few years of taekwondo and it's made my legs quite strong. i thought perhaps my legs still weren't strong enough so i've been doing more legwork for the past 4 months and yet the problem reappears randomly.

    my diet has been inconsistent and whether i'm eating healthily or not doesn't seem to be a factor.

    the only solution i can think of for this is to do a massive stretching session every morning and every night???

    please help a soul in pain.

    You should seek medical attention.

    do you honestly think so? (sorry i can't tell if you're being sarcastic)

    i saw a doctor last summer and he said it was probably due to too much weight. i weigh about 110kg and i'm only 5'8"....body fat % is probably about 30. i'm sceptical of this since the pain is inconsistent and there are no effects on my knees/ankles as i mentioned earlier.

    i'm going to see another doctor once i register with one (i am student and i've moved halls to a different area) but in the mean time i need a short term solution :(

    If you can't walk for 2 minutes, yes I'm serious. I'd add that you should make sure you're drinking enough water and getting electrolytes.

    And also how do you know its lactic acid causing this problem?

    It's dangerous and more often than not incorrect to jump to conclusions about stuff like this unless your a doctor or a medical professional of some sorts yourself. Definitly get it checked out by someone who knows what their doing.

    Hope its nothing serious.

    The urination part makes me think that maybe there's something out of wack with the kidneys, and maybe they're not removing waste/toxins as well as they should *

    Probably not Lactic Acid necessarily, but muscle pain. First thing is Magnesium. Do some research on PubMed and see what you think. Based on some research I did recently, some medical professionals believe Magnesium should be considered in the differential diagnosis of all cases of muscle pain.

    Disclaimer: This is not to say don't go to your doctor, or to engage in self-diagnosis of any kind. If the problem is constant, severe, and/or crippling, always better to play it safe. Just throwing out a possibility that could be worth looking into.

    With regards to the magnesium, should i just take vitamin+mineral supplements (i already take multivitamins) since my student lifestyle makes it impossible to get fruit and veg everyday?

    With regards to what Permalost has pointed out, i wonder how that would only affect my calves and nowhere else.
