Leg pain: Your symptoms in the calf could be muscular strain or phlebitis, but swelling and tenderness favor phlebitis. A ruptured Baker's cyst behind the knee can simulate phlebitis. An ultrasound would be important. See a physician for evaluation and appropriate testing as soon as possible even if you have to go to the hospital emergency room to get prompt attention.
