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.
 
Pls help. My spouce's left leg is paining. She's on vericose vein treatment but condition keeps reccuring. The right leg had similar problem and subsided.
Hi. Elevate the leg with support under the whole limb( to avoid strain) - above the heart level. If the pain reduces or goes away nothing to worry about. If there is pain on pressing the calf muscles you have to see the Doctor ASAP.
