Customer Question

I am having leg pain for no reason. It's especially bad when walking or after standing. Mostly I feel it in my calf, but also running up the back of my leg. Should I go get medical care right now? Concerned about blood clots

Yes, it should be examined.

It is more likely a lower spine disc problem and you will need prescription medciations.

A blood clot can be ruled out.

Usually that would cause swelling, but not always.
