An_246528 posted:

Last two days back I walked and stand by little bit more time .Next day morning I feel the pain in my left leg calf, resulting the swelling has started in my calf. This is my first experience in life and left side calf has bulged.

Anyone have feel the same experience, please share it for the medicine or cure.
Rich Weil, MEd, CDE responded:
I don't know why your calf is swelling. You can check the symptom checker but if it continues, and especially if you have pain, you ought to see your doctor. There are many reasons for swelling and it will be difficult for anyone online to diagnose and recommend treatment. Good luck.
