Burning Tingling Calf Muscles Symptoms
Tight right calf muscle for @ 1 week. Worse with rest, seems tingling /burning/ itchy at night in bed. Not hot or discolored. Thoughts?
Calf discomfort: One possibility is congestion in the calf veins which builds up during the day's activity on your feet. Elevating the leg should relieve that discomfort, however. Irritability of calf nerves or muscles may be a cause. A blood clot in a calf vein usually is accompanied by swelling and tenderness. It's best to have a physician examine your leg and, if deemed advisable, get an ultrasound of the veins ...Read more

FM 50, perimenopause, from last two days I get spells of coldness in my both calf muscles, no pain, numbness, tingling. So what to do? Thanks
Cold Calves: Lower extremity coldness can be due to many conditions, too numerous to discuss here. With hormonal fluctuations, as a woman approaches menopause, there may be a phenomenon of superficial vascular hyper-reactivity. Dilation is often described by many women as hot flashes, dizziness, sweating, etc. If vessels constrict, blood flow decreases, the skin will cool, hence the cold limbs. ...Read more

Partial tear: Usually this history means a partial tear of one the calf muscles. The medial head of the gastrocnemius is the most common. Tingling may just be from some swelling around the nerve.

Neuro: Have you seen neurology? Just a thought since the tingling sensation seems to be the main issue.

Thinking out loud. ...Read more

What causes a burning sensation in the viens in my fore arms? Also the muscles in my calfs keep locking up.
Don't know: I have never heard of burning in forearm veins unless something has been injected into them. Assuming you are not doing that (and maybe especially if you are) then you should see a clinician to find the cause of this and the leg cramps. Probably need blood tests as well. Meanwhile, keep your arms above your heart level and try some heat on them as well as your leg muscles to see if it helps. ...Read more

Is burning muscle fatigue in the calf normal after a long road trip? I tried to walk when I could but chances were few and far between
No it's not: Is it just one calf? If so, you could have a blood clot and you need to be evaluated now. If it is both, well, it COULD be two clots but that's unusual. If there could have been pressure under the thigh during the trip and if the symptoms are resolving, then not to worry. If you are on BCP's, then do worry. ...Read more
