Could this have been the culprit? You have to be very careful of your knees on 'seated' calf raises. You might have a ligament out of track across your knee. I would definitely ice it, elevated it when possible, and take an anti-inflammatory like aleve (with some food to protect your stomach though). When the inflamed ligament has calm down, it should pop back into place. The worst thing you can do is keep going with it inflamed, as this will stretch it out, and may get to a point where repair is compromised. A brace may help it after it has popped back into place. . . give it 2 days of rest for that to happen, or at least till the swelling has gone down.
