I received a full body massage yesterday and today my left calf muscle has a sore spot. Should I be worried?

Probably not: The masseuse probably bruised you. Watch the bruise over the next few days to make sure it begins to disappear. If you easily bruise, you may want to be evaluated by your doctor as this may be a sign of anemia or other illness. But no need to worry at this time as you have a reason for this bruise. ...Read more

2nd opinion: If you have not had a Doppler ultrasound to rule out a clot, you may want to go for second opinion.
