I am 68 years old, non-smoker, slightly over-weight, and in moderately good condition. I have a particular but very annoying pain and irritating problem in my legs. When I try to sleep and my left leg is in a horizontal position with my head parallel to the ground, there develops a severe pain in my calf muscle on the left fleshy side. When I lift my leg toward the ceiling and kick my leg or get up and kick my leg I get momentary relief. Still, when I fall asleep again the pain returns. The pain has been particularly bad in the past two weeks even though I have had this pain over the past 1-2 months. In the morning, the pain tends to weaken after I shower with warm water or place a cold compress on it for 15 mins. Yet it can it times return. When I have the pain, it hurts when I walk or climb the stairs. Interesting the pain seems to subside when I sit or stand for a prolonged period. I am not on any medicine, but frequently have night sweats.

I have pain in my calf that worsens with exercise or certain movements of my foot . There is no bump, or noticeable swelling except around my knee and maybe thigh? (Knee swelling is likely result of recent -late November - scope for patellar tear). Began day before yesterday. Today, there might be a small warm spot on my calf (don t think it s in my head), and the past hour or so, full body tingling , but worse in left leg.

About three weeks ago, my calf was swollen, red, and itchy after a 7 hour car ride from SF to LA. I also noticed there was a lump/bump beneath my skin at the location of the swelling and a noticeable warmth at the site. I waited a couple of days to see if the swelling would go away but when my condition stayed the same, I went to an urgent care center. They ruled out DVT based on my symptoms and they suggested it was an infection of some sort and prescribed me an antibiotic, which I never took. I wasn t 100% confident with their prognosis since there was no open wound/bite mark of any sort and the itch felt like it was beneath the skin and not topical as scratching did not alleviate the discomfort. Over the next few days, my lower leg became increasingly swollen and the bump moved to my inner calf/leg. When I noticed my ankle started to swell, I went to the ER to get an ultrasound and it too came back negative for DVT. Long story short, over the next two weeks, the lump/bump, which is now more of a mass the size of a child s fist, has migrated. What started as swelling from my lower calf has migrated to my inner calf, up to my knee, up to inner thigh, front of the thigh, and now, at the three week mark, it is on my hip. The mass is still warm to the touch, itchy, and has also left slight bruising and small residual bumps along it s path. I have been to my family doctor twice since going to the ER and he has no idea what it is or what could have caused it. He has referred me to a rheumatologist and am now waiting for my HMO insurance to approve it before I can see her. I have been stressing about this for weeks without any answers. Please help!
