Most likely there is not cardiac or pulmonary cause. Muscle skeletal pain may be related to your symptoms. Discuss whether ibuprofen should be used and apply local heat to gauge whether there is improvement. Watch for signs of leg swelling, shortness of breath and if this occurs, please see acute care.
