After i drink several glasses of red wine, my right calf swells up, my leg aches, and i get an itchy rash behind my knee. Whats going on?

In brief: Reaction to sulfites

Is possible. Sometimes, more expensive red wines can contain sulfites.
I don't know why your left calf will be spared though. Stick with cheap white wine.
