drknowsbest :

this needs to be looked at by your dr today or if necessary by an ER

drknowsbest :

the calf is a common place for deep vein clots and muscle aches is commonly how they can present

drknowsbest :

if you have a clot you are at risk for dislodging it to the lung circulation and this is very dangerous

drknowsbest :

for now take aspirin if you can and call your dr, the colonoscopy and the overheating makes you at more risk for electrolyte problems and low potassium can cause calf cramping but either way a DVT needs to be ruled out
