HalfCalf HalfDeCalf: If you haven't injured or strained your calf, if the skin is not discolored, if the knee or calf is not swollen (check carefully behind the knee;compare with the other side), if you can breathe OK and don't have any chest pain, if you can walk OK and you have no back pain, then I'd give it a week and see what happens.Use Motrin and/or Tylenol (acetaminophen) and be careful. If it persists or gets worse, see a doc
