Pain in calf of leg colonoscopy 6 weeks ago traveled sunday for 3 hours and is worse.was told joint but isn't where pain is.could it be DVT?

Get ultrasound

Colonoscopy
Go to ER or vein specialist( www.phlebology.org) immediately for venous scan of your leg to rule out DVT. Prolonged sitting with car or airline travel can precipitate blood clots, ESpecially the 25% of the population walking around with inherited vein disease that don't know they have it. We always recommend medical compression stockings or socks for travel, even after your tests.

Pain in lower calf of leg on left side had to walk?

Could be serious

I think your problem could be one of many possible scenarios . The most important disease to rule out immediately is whether you have venous blood clot called DVT. I would suggest you see your primary care provider immediately and have him check you.

This morning when I woke up my rights Foot was having a pain coming from the ball of myfoot during the day pain has got worst now feel by calf of leg?

Ball of foot pain

Leg
There could be several issues going on with your foot pain, stress fracture, metatarsalgia, capsulitis, neuroma, plantar plate ligament tear, joint dislocation, etc. When you have pain at one part of your foot, you naturally compensate by changing the way you walk in order to get through the day and this may be causing pain to the back of your calf. Hope this answers your question.

Lower back also pain in the left calf of leg One dr says physical therapy to strenght lower back. My family dr says I need the injection in my back therapy wont take the pain away I have degerant arthrsis. The pain in my left calf of the leg is very pain

Back

Back pain shooting down the left leg is called sciatica. Sciatica results when a disk, bone spur or stenosis pinches the sciatic nerve as it leaves the back and goes into the leg. Treatment for sciatica include rest, anti-inflammatories, physical therapy, steroid injections and surgery. Initial treatment is usually rest, anti-inflammatories followed by physical therapy. People who do not respond may go onto steroid injections and/or surgery. Sometimes patients skip physical therapy if the pain is severely aggregated by movement. This maybe why one doctor is recommending steroid injection first. Today there are minimally invasive options for disk surgery. Please see my HEALTH GUIDE on lumbar disk disease and sciatica. Good Luck!

There is a very dangerous medical condition called Deep Vein Thrombosis. If you are describing warm red swollen calfs you need to get to a medical center urgently. If you have chest pain or shortness of breath or are coughing please make this more than urgent. It can be an emergency.

Calf pain waking up at night cant move legs and get rid of cramp?

Circulation issue

Calf_pain_
Sounds like a problem with your circulation. When you stand up or walk, gravity assists in bringing blood through your legs and feet. When you sleep in bed, gravity isn't able to bring more blood to your feet which causes, amongst other things, muscle cramps. I would recommend evaluation by your primary care doctor.
