Reason for lower leg swelling, heavy and tender? Not alleviated on doing exercise. No injury sustained

My left lower leg (in particular the inside/backside area of my calf ) feels heavy and swollen and tender (if it presses up against something but not when I compress it manually). There is no color nor actual size differential when compared to my right calf but it FEELS very different. I am a 36 year old female 5 4 115lbs who gets in about 30 minutes of moderate intentional exercise daily. I do sit in a desk each day for extended periods of time and also have anvrt (type of tachycardia ). The sensation is not alleviated nor worsened when I exercise. I have not sustained any injuries or severe muscle exertion. This started 2 weeks ago in a more focused area and has now spread more diffusely over my lower leg.

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern the given history does not indicative of any disease what ever the symptoms that you have described here must be nonspecific, could be due to the exercise, I think taking this matter seriously is not necessary, just forget about this with the time this would come around no need to take any medicine for this have a nice day,
