is the area red or hot to the touch?
Does it hurt when you flex your foot back (pull your toes up and back)
Do you have any other health problems or take any medication?
Is it an ache type pain or a pulling type pain?
the area is not red or hot to touch (any more than other parts of leg or the other leg)
It does hurt when I flex my foot, as long as my leg is extended.
I have asthma and use an inhaler.
It sounds less likely to be a DVT and more likely to be a tightening of the tendon due to prolonged sitting. Since I am unable to examine you it is still advisable that you have the area assessed by a health professional and possibly have an ultrasound of the area to be certain.
don't do anymore stretching exercises for now.
How urgently should I do this? It is 1am where I am, and I don't know if I should go to an ER
continue the ibuprophen
tomorrow is sunday, should I try to go to dr tomorrow?
no I don't believe it's urgent. You can wait until daylight and go to an urgent care clinic
Keep the leg in a straightened position. Don't massage it
walking is fine
don't apply heat or ice
I think it would be ok to wait until Monday. If you develop swelling, redness, hot skin of the area to the touch or severe pain than you should be seen right away
ok thank you
You're welcome, I hope you feel better soon : )
