Go to your Doctor or Urgent Care now. ...Read more

Is calf pain, without other symptoms, in a 32 year old who hasn't been exercising or had any injury worrisome? I had 2 days bed rest for migraine.
Possibly: If there is pain in the calf without much physical exertion to worry about then, one thing to think of would be a blood clot or deep venous thrombosis (DVT).
