Hmm..Calf Pain...: Pain in the calf, for what ever reason, needs to investigated, especially is it is realized at night. This pain can be generated by a multitude of conditions but the one to be concerned with is impeded blood flow to the leg. An experienced clinician can make that appraisal easily during an initial exam. You can use Healthtap or your own physician to start the ball rolling. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you tell me when having sex and I am about to orgasm, why do I get a really intense charlie horse in my calf?
Muscle spasm: Most likely from the work you are doing during sex. Sex is hard work but usually pays off with much pleasure. However, you may be favoring one leg or the other as you work during sex, and have a muscle spasm. Could be electrolytes low such as sodium or potassium. Try taking a multi-vitamin every day, keep yourself hydrated well, and try to keep up good nutrition. ...Read more
Very scared!started walking 45min a night 2weeks ago. Feel like I have a charlie horse -right lower calf. No DVT risk but my weight. Cld it be dvt?
Calf pain about 2 weeks ago i got what i thought was a charlie horse in the calf of my left leg and since then the pain seems to have moved up in back of my knee, do you think I have just sprained my calf. Or is there some thing else going on. Thank you!
Hard : Hard to say without seeing it, but one concern I have is phlebitis, an inflamed clot inside a vein, which can cause pain and swelling and the feeling of migration further up the leg. There are two kinds of phlebitis: superficial thrombophlebitis, which is annoying at best, and deep vein thrombosis, which is a medical emergency because the clot has the ability to break off and travel to the lung. Given there is a possibility of the latter, i would recommend you make an appointment with your primary care physician today. If you're having chest pain or shortness of breath, you must go to the er immediately. I don't mean to be an alarmist. What you have could just be a silly muscle sprain. But given my lack of ability to see your leg, and given the possibility of you having a dvt, i'd rather not take chances and insist you get checked out now to be safe.
