I am having pain in my left leg--in the calf

I am having pain in my left leg--in the calf area--it started in my foot and is now in my calf. No swelling, redness, or hurting when squeezed. Feels like a knot in my calf when I put weight on it. Pain is not bad, but hinders my walking. Seems worse at night. I'm taking Atorvastin--could that be the problem?

I am a 72 year old male. I am overweight and live sedentary life style. I have type 2 diabetics. My problem started about 18 months ago. I started walking every day and felt great, but after about 3 weeks, while walking, I got a severe pain in the calf of my left leg. I didn t think I was going to be able to walk back to my house. I rested after I got home, but the pain didn t go away. When I would get up and walk on it I had to limp it hurt so much. It took about 2 months before I could start walking again, but two days after I started the whole thing started all over again. I was down for another month before I could start walking every morning again. This same pattern has taken place about 4 or 5 times only now it hurts in both legs. Doctor took tests when this first started but they couldn t find anything wrong. What could be the possible and the likely cause. Thank You.

Hello, I am a registered nurse and recently completed 4 12hrs shifts. After that I started noticing that my left calf would hurt when I bent my leg. It does not hurt to walk, nut when I raise my leg and bend at the knee it hurts on the medial side. This has been going on for 2 weeks now. I have tried Epsom salt baths, sports cream but nothing seems to stop it.

my lower leg in the calf area or right behind the left knee is hurting. I went to have a doppler and there was no blodd clot or anything present. The doctor said give it sometime or go see a orthopedic specialist. It hurs or feels like a strain when I flex my foot inward not point my toes. It feels great when I have on heels or higher shoes, but if I am barefoot it strains to walk.
