Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chip
Is the leg swollen and is there any change in skin color?
OK. While you may have had a calf muscle tear, I'm concerned about all this and how long it's gone on.
You may have a deep venous thrombosus--a clot in a deep leg vein--and that can lead to a life-threatening pulmonary embolus.
You need to see a doctor now for this and get Doppler venous flow studies since if you have a DVT you'll need to be given blood thinners
Please let me know if you need any more information
I'm still here........
You said slight swelling and I then gave you my answer
Was there something in my answer that was unclear?
