Did you have any tests done?
Any knee swelling? or calf swelling?
There can be several possibilities:
1. Blood clot in the calf blood vessels --should be checked by doppler ultrasound.
1. Peripheral neuropathy: this mean the nerves supplying the calf muscles are getting damaged. Lower spine herniated disc, vitamin B12 deficiency, metabolic disorder, autoimmune disorder are some of the causes.2. Peripheral vascular disease-- this refers to the blockage of the arteries supplying your calf muscle. The stopping distance is known as intermittent claudication.Atherosclerosis, arterial spasm, pressure on the artery from outside are some of the causes.
