Pain in left calf. Been to emergency twice. Both say sprained muscle. Done nothing to cause it. No swelling or clot signs. Dr won't scan. I'm worried.

2nd opinion: If you have not had a Doppler ultrasound to rule out a clot, you may want to go for second opinion. The exam for a blood clot is only 50 percent sensitive, meaning that exam findings can be misleading. You could very well not have one, but in a person with no injury and calf pain it should be done on almost all patients in my opinion. ...Read more

Recently i was diagnosed with a hern disk at l5/s1. Most of the acute symptoms have gone away after 6 weeks except for soreness in my left calf. Should i try steroids or injections or will this go away?

Treat leg not back: Treatment should only be based on pain levels and functional status, not on the anatomical/mri state of your spine. If the left calf pain is minor, then simply wait for it to fade. If it is troublesome, then physical therapy followed by epidural steroid injection are the options. But a pinched nerve does heal with time even by itself. ...Read more
