Hi. Im a 26 y/o female. I I've been having left calf pain for a few days now, no injury. It feels like a giant bruise and it feels a little harder than the right side. Possible DVT?
Can not always say.: Pain in the calf which persists needs to be watched but you should check & see if there is some swelling or not. If you relax your leg & have someone push your foot & toes back toward the leg & there is pain then you need to have it checked if also swollen.
