    Default Calf Strain swelling not going down?

    Three weeks ago I strained my right calf muscle a little bit. For the first two weeks I managed to get the swelling down, and my leg looked about normal.

    A week ago I walked up two huge flights of stairs, and now even when I take 800mg ibuprofen the swelling wonít go down. My feet are elevated almost all day. After hours of not walking the swelling goes down a little. I strained my calf last year, but much worse, and ibuprofen always made the swelling go down.
    Iím just wondering why the ibuprofen isnít working right away?

    Any input appreciated. Thank you.

    A picture or a circumferential measurement would be helpful data.
