What causes sudden sharp pain in the calf?

Yes, I m experiencing a sudden sharp pain in my right calf deep with the muscle tissue. It was a tight knot before and then it sort of broke loss and it became very painful. If I attempt to run or walk fast I get a shooting pain deep inside the calf muscle.

General Surgeon 's  Response

The deep calf pain can be from multiple possible issues as muscle cramp, deep vein clot or others.

Immediate relief with analgesic can be obtained, but a clinical examination with expert physician is best recommended to rule out any underlying suspicious issue.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Wishing you all the best.
