Ultrasound: Is there swelling or tenderness? It may still be a strained muscle. Sometimes a cyst behind the knee is the culprit. A venous ultrasound would be indicated if your calf discomfort worsens or persists. This would check for a DVT which is the main concern.

DVTs will not: "dissolve". You will need anticoagulation and/or anti-thrombus medication for the rtest of your life.
