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

What r symps of pulled calf muscle? Can it cause painful twitches? Normal? Other symp bump along lateral side of lower leg when I stand, like hernia

Strain: A strained muscle causes soreness and pain on use and takes a week or so to heal. Occasionally bumps in the lateral calf area are due to small herniations of fat tissue through the muscle. Varicose veins are another possibility. A physician would have to examine you to be sure. Muscle twitches are not commonly due to sprains and can occur spontaneously. Muscle cramps are commonly due to tight musc ...Read more

Red itchy hard painful bump on calf. Possibly ingrown hair. Pulled tiny sharp hair out, hurt worse. Applied bag balm. Bump smaller now, but I limp. ?

Red itchy hard painful bump on calf. Possibly ingrown hair. Pulled tiny sharp hair out, hurt worse. Applied bag balm. Bump smaller now, but I limp. ?

Doctor can check: A bump from an ingrown hair on the lower leg should not cause an amount of pain that would make a person limp. There could be something more serious there, and one's primary care doctor can examine the area to see what is going on. One possibility is a skin cyst (epidermal inclusion cyst) that has gotten inflamed or infected... those usually need to be opened or removed. ...Read more

Been taking gabapentin 100mg once daily for 2 yrs. Started having sudden allergy to it, itchy all over and random bumps on my calf. How do I wean off?

Homeopathic Rx: If you are reasonably healthy at all at 41 years of age, gabapentin 100mg twice daily is almost of no benefit therapeutically and virtually not affecting you systemically. You could stop the gabapentin immediately and most likely suffer no side effects. If that concerns you, take one capsule daily for 3 days then stop completely. If there is no improvement in your rash--likely another allergen. ...Read more
