Topic: Knee and calf pain. Help please!

Hi its me.

I have been getting some really bad knee and calf pain recently. My calf has this constant stringy tendon pain that stretches from my knee right down to the bottom of my calf (though it doesn't reach my ankle). This is really annoying pain and I want it to just disappear as soon as possible... I have tried a few calf stretches but they didn't seem to help... my knee pain is also on the back bit of my knee and is the same kind of tendon sort of pain... I have heard about knee support... can knee support help at all? I really have got thin and unstable legs so my guess is that I do need more support... Or should I concentrate on improving the muscles density in my legs instead?  Anyone got any ideas?
