I was diagnosed with bronchitis and bronchospasms. I was placed on Leviquin 500 mgm. once a day and promethizine with codeine Wed. night. I have leg cramps too.
The cramps can be due to fatigue and tiredness. Have lots of fluids. If calf pain worsens, have an evaluation to rule out thrombosis.
 
feeling calf muscle pain
Hi, If this pain has started spontaneously without warning and there is some swelling, I suggest you see a doctor to exclude a DVT. If the pain followed exercise then it may be a pulled muscle. In this case, elevate your leg and apply ice 4 times a day. Regards, Dr K A Pottinger
