What could cause a dull pain in calf followed by tingling senation?

Could be your back: The most concerning diagnosis would be a herniated disc in your back. It is also possible that you have a simple strain of your calf. If your symptoms persist I would see a good local orthopaedic surgeon. Read more

For several years, after running I get a dull aching pain from top of tendon to mid - top calf, will still ache 2-4 weeks after. Ache after 2wks?

May not be: A tendon. I strongly advise an examination and venous /arterial doppler study of your mid- lower leg, to rule out a clot or vein inflammation (dvt or thrombophlebitis). Do not ignore these symptoms- call today or go directly to the ER or UC clinic. No running until cleared. Read more

Dull Pain in groin, inside of thigh, behind knee and in calf - is this likely muscular or vascular?

Dull Pain in groin, inside of thigh, behind knee and in calf - is this likely muscular or vascular?

Not vascular: Age unknown w. pain unilateral groin, thigh, posterior knee & calf suggests neural impingement absent vascular involvement & swelling distal leg. Sacroiliac joint disorder can arouse sciatica & groin pain. Other considerations: Sartorious Syndrome & Pyriformis Syndrome. Vertebral stenosis w. nerve root impingements does not typically refer pain to groin. Osteopaths discern soft tissue disorders. Read more

Dvt or something less serious? Left leg pain below calf that spreads through entire leg/thigh. Not excruciating just achy/dull pain. What is this?!

Dvt or something less serious? Left leg pain below calf that spreads through entire leg/thigh. Not excruciating just achy/dull pain. What is this?!

Needs ultrasound.: Discomfort and aching in the leg is a very common complaint. When this occurs, it is imperative to eliminate the most significant potential problem which could be a blood clot. Although there are many other reasons to explain your symptoms, a venous ultrasound is the first step. If negative, then other sources of the pain and aching can be pursued. Read more

Get eval: With a fall on concrete, with full weight bearing onto your knee cap, best for you to get it evaluated with a possible x-ray as you may have fractured your patella bone (knee cap). Good luck. Read more

Having dull pain in both calves that only lasts 2-3 seconds it comes and goes. I did extensive calf workouts last weekend. Is this DVT or muscle cramp?

Having dull pain in both calves that only lasts 2-3 seconds it comes and goes. I did extensive calf workouts last weekend. Is this DVT or muscle cramp?

Most likely Cramps: It is very unlikely that a healthy 21 yr old would get a DVT. Further the workout best explains your calf cramps. If the pain becomes more constant, or severe, or is accompanied by pale color changes then you should be seek medical evaluation. Read more

Cramping calf-to-ankle after running, gets sore for next few days. Was just walking, felt pop in lower leg. Sharp pain initially, now dull pain. Full mvmnt

Pop sounds Bad.: Feeling a pop in a calf, especially under the circumstances you have given, is certainly concerning. I would recommend that you see a specialist for a evaluation of your calf. Pops can be an indication of a slight tear that could lead to something more serious. Second guessing this potential problem is just not worth it. Read more

Felling dull pain in right hand testicle/lower back/leg. Had all tests- testy, kidney ultrasounds/mri of pelvis/urine & blood clear. What could it be?

Urine culture?: You did not say if you had a urine culture done. Sometimes this kind of pain can be due to an infection that may not show up with routine urine cultures. An example is nongonoccocal urethritis or prostatiis. Some docs might try a course of antibiotics and see if that helps the symptoms, since cultures can be expensive. Discuss this with your doc or see a urologist. Read more
