Things to consider: Are you on any medication like a statin? If so inform your doctor. Were you recently doing any physical activity? Potassium or magnesium levels could be off. Dehydration could be a factor.
One must be concerned with a DVT when calf pain is involved but if you have the condition bilaterally, i would think the odds are pretty low of having this on both sides.
Nerve compressions are a possibility.
