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

Muscle (Definition)

It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

I have a tingling sensation at the front of my lower left calf muscle that's been there for about 2 months. I feels like it filled with fluid or acid

All the time?: Is the sensation there all the time? Does it shift sides at all? Does it change from tingling to numb to burning or anything like that? Tight clothes? You may wish to consult a neurologist and what they think if it's just not going away.

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.

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. I expect that to resolve within a few days. Rest, ice a calf sleeve and wearing supportive shoes with heels should all help you. Don't stretch it. Ibuprofen optional. Healing usually in 2-6 weeks.

I have soreness and knot in my calf muscle, also has moved to my foot and ankle also have a tingling feeling in my foot, is this related with pulled m?

Maybe: This sounds like some sort of nerve impingement (pinched nerve.) this may have been caused by a calf injury. I think you need to see your doctor quickly to get an early jump on this. They will also rule out the possiblity of a blood clot to your calf.

Circulation: Seek an evaluation to specifically determine if your symptoms are arterial vs venous in nature. Particularly, do they get better or worse with ambulation vs rest? Are you diabetic?

Plantaris?: Might be a ruptured plantaris muscle. If so it will heal in a few weeks. Might be a blood clot (DVT). See a DR very soon: now.

When I contract my calf muscles, I feel tingling sensation in my both feet all the time. No cramps. Been to physio, no hernia or anything serious.

Neuro: Have you seen neurology? Just a thought since the tingling sensation seems to be the main issue. They may be able to direct you to neurophysiology who conduct electromyography and nerve conduction tests (unless you've already had that done?) to see if there is an abnormality in the nerves that run through/by your calf muscles. Thinking out loud.

MRI brain with FLAIR: The facial tingling and response to hot shower is concerning. Your neurologist will want to do a good exam and get an MRI of the head to exclude MS or clinically isolated syndrome.

Tarsal tunnel: Description sounds somewhat like tarsal tunnel syndrome which is an entrapped nerve in the ankle but could also be referred lumbar radiculopathy (pinched nerve in back) or just really bad tendinitis compressing the nerves of the lower leg. Sounds like an exam and some nerve conduction velocities would be helpful.

Neuropathy: Peripheral nerve symptoms can be related to multiple causes. Diet, drugs, environmental factors, diseases, etc. All can cause neuropathic symptoms. If your legs are weak this might be due to a muscular nerve dysfunction. Further neurological evaluation would be indicated here.
