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
 
need pain that spreads into lower calf, difficulty standing or walking, feels like a huge knot in the calf muscle.
Do apply warm compresses, the pain could be due to spasm in the muscle. Warmth releases the spasm and provide you relief.
