Get it checked ASAP.: Two possibilities come to mind. If you have a blood clot in your calf, your leg could look like that. Have it checked out immediately, because blood clots can go to the lungs. If it is not a blood clot, it could be CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome). This also needs to be seen soon as it can turn into a major pain problem.
