Calf muscle pain. Help?

Hmmmm?: Lots of potential causes of calf pain including blood clots, muscle spasms, muscle tears or sprains, popliteal artery entrapment, dehydration, abnormal electrolytes, nerve injuries, exertional compartment syndrome, or even stress fractures. If it doesn't resolve with basic treatment of rest, ice, compression and elevation, you should probably get it checked.
