Difficult to say: If you have had a long-standing problem w/calf pain or 'charley-horses' i would see your physician for evaluation.In the differential DX would be a chronic gastoc.Strain, a 'leaking' bakers' cyst and even a dvt(blood clot).Best bet is to come in and see your orthopedic surgeon for evvaluation.Good luck!
