Probably minor.: Calf pain is always of concern because of the potential to be due to a clot (superficial or deep). What you are describing has none of the characteristics of a deep clot and, although you see a green vein, it also doesn't sound like a superficial clot. Other things can cause calf pain such as muscle pull, trauma or straining. If you have worsening pain then you should see your doctor sooner. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm going to see a neurologist for my migraines, my arm is always tingling numb&painful can the scan pick up the cause of the arm numbness also?
Possibly: Dear serval, most patients with migraines have normal MRI studies. If the cause of your sensory changes is an abnormality of the brain, then an MRI of the brain could find it.

A neurologist can help you sort out what kind of test(s) you need. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
