Hello and thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.
Is there any calf swelling or redness?
and no redness?
Do you have a diagnosed medical problem and are you on any medicines?
Does this pain comes and goes?
Which pill ?
and which analgesic you are on?
Are you with me?
Thanks a lot for your input.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
As per description of your symptoms, i am of the opinion that there is nothing to be concerned and nothing to be stressed.
This sounds like a muscular pain.
I am not suspecting anything like a blood clot or anything else because in those cases, symptoms have to be persistent and progressive.
I suggest that along with the pain killers, application of heating pads to the area and massage of the calves with OTC bengay cream cream can help you.
If you can find diclofenac gel over the counter, it would be best.
Muscular pains can come at any time. There can be one more reason and that is electrolyte imbalance secondary to decreased fluid in take.
You should drink Gatorade also.
You should try the above measures for 5 days and if symptoms persist, see your GP.
Gatorade is oral rehydrating solution. You can get it from pharmacy, it's over the counter.
If they don't have Gatorade, just ask for oral rehydrating solution (ORS).
