Question: Hello,

I have pain and tenderness on my right calf, inside left side, medial side i think. It started today, about 10 hours ago. It is sharp at times intermittently and comes and goes. No other symptoms, i am reasonably active and exercise 3-4 times a week with yoga and running - the tenderness is about 3 or 4 out of 10 with 10 being extreme pain, when i press on the tender local area. I thought it muscle pain and feels better when i stretch the calf but was worried whether it could be DVT or a clot - HR is 65-70 RHR all day and no other symptoms at all. I can walk without pain but from time to time i feel a sharp pain for a second or 2 - kindly advise me - i have atached images as well. No discoloration or major swelling. Thank you kindly for this great service and your expertise

Brief Answer:
It can be simple muscular pain.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question.
I can understand your concern.




You have calf pain. But from your history it's looks like simple muscular pain in calf. It is very common. It is mild type of pain and releived by starching.

I have gone through your attached images. No any swelling or redness is there. It doesn't look any serious condition.

You just wait for a day or two. It will be cured by itself Is you can take analgesic drug.

If your pain remains persistent then you need examination. I need to examine pulsation in your lower leg arteries. But right now it doesn't looks like DVT or clot.

Wait for some time. Give me follow up.

Hope I have answered your question.
If you have doubts then feel free to ask me.
I will be happy to answer.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.

Thanks for your guidance and assurance, i will minotor it and update you tomorrow as well

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
