It may be a muscle cramp. You have not put across, complete evolution. Complete progress history of the event, would have helped.

Leg pain is very common if you have calcium deficiency. Check your calcium level in the blood. Take a calcium supplement daily. Drink 2 glasses of milk every day. Also check your blood pressure once.

Only pain and swelling? or do u see some kind of color change in the leg also. Blood clotting in ure veins can also cause something like this.

Hello, a few months back, above just one of my teeth , my gum started hurting very badly. It was sore to the touch, and was constantly throbbing. This lasted about two weeks, and then suddenly went away. As of yesterday, the same area started hurting again. It s exactly the same as it was. There is no bleeding , and it does not appear to be swollen. It just hurts very badly. Could you tell me what this could mean?

My son, 42 , has been in excessive pain in his lower back for more than a month. The pain is on his right side and goes down his leg and it feels like he has a bad cramp all the time .He has been to doctors and they prescribe pain killers and muscle relaxers but so far nothing is working ,they even sent him to Physio,but nothing helps and the pain is getting worse and enables him to walk or work . Can you tell me what to do?
