Brief Answer:
Cause of calf pain needs to be detected.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Bursitis can cause pain in the hip but is not likely to cause a calf pain. In case the calf pain is persistent then you need to rule out DVT or muscle spasm and other causes of such pain after a proper examination and investigations like color doppler scan. Giving rest to the legs and a hot compress can help till then.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
