It seems like you have got a deep vein thrombosis in one of the calf veins.

You should get a peripheral doppler ultrasound done immediately, to rule this out. If this is really DVT, then you would need to start on clot busters, or go for a surgical embolectomy.


Please get the appropriate referral from your PCP.


Hope this helps.
