Thigh injury. Pain in calf muscle, tightness, difficulty moving it

last week i hurt my thigh, it hurt a little but i ran on it yesterday, but i kept my injured leg on my toes most of the time because it hurt less that way. About 45 mins into the run i could feel my calf muscle hurting a little. This morning i woke up and i could barely walk because of my calf muscle and it had a bruise on it. My thigh feels almost completely better now but my calf is so tight i can barely move it

Since you had hurt your thigh and after exertion you have bruise on calf with tight calf muscle, I would really like to rule out possibility of blood clot in your veins or a large subcutaneous hematoma.

I would recommend you to seen doctor or go ER sooner.
