Tight feeling on lower leg on the side from were the calf ends to ankle but from the side hurts when i walk but comes as it please help.
Many factors : It sounds as if you might have achilles bursitis. A bursa acts as a cushion and lubricant between tendons/muscles that slide over bone. The retrocalcaneal bursa is located in the back of the ankle by the heel and forms a cushion between the large achilles tendon which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone.

Last nite had tightness in lower left leg w achiness. I was sick & today it feels better after drinking a lot of water. Could I have been dehydrated?
