Need to rule out DVT: You should see your provider to rule out DVT. You are st high risk to develop blood clot in the veins of leg. It is treatable if diagnosed timely. It could be lethal if breaks and reaches lungs causing pulmonary embolism

Examination: Since you have experienced muscle tears in the past, you will need a doctor to examine and fond out if that has happened again. Why it took you months to figure that out seems odd, bit you need a professional to find what has happened, and how to treat it
