General & Family Physician 's  Response
Pain in calf while brisk walking and relieves after taking rest, is indicative of 'Deep Venous Thrombosis'.
Deep venous thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot in a vein that is deep inside a part of the body, usually the legs.
Other symptoms of DVT are- swelling, redness in leg;Increased warmth.
Diagnosis can be done by- USG, blood test[ D-dimer test],CT OR MRI imaging.
Never squeeze the calves till you confirm the DVT. As that might dislodge the clot and called serious embolism.
Consult physician to confirm the same.
Take care.

Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
