Hi , i get this quite a bit also, i found it really difficult to effectively stretch my calve muscles after exercise.For me to try and describe the discomfort it seemed to come from the inner medial aspect of my calf radiating to the inner side of each calf, causing strain on my knee joint and shins, to which i worked out was my soleus muscle.
This is the only calf stretch that effectively works for me.
Calf stretch on stairs.
Stand on the stairs, holding a handrail or placing your hand on the wall for support. Place the ball of one foot on the stair. Lower your heel down toward the step below, until you feel a gentle pull in your calf. Switch legs.
I do this stretch even on days when im not training my calf muscles.
If you dont effectively stretch you're calf muscle it can lead to more serious injuries and possibly shin splints depend on what actual muscle is causing bother.
Hope this helps
