This is Dr. David

you could have pulled a muscle in your calf

or you could have a blood clot in your calf if you have pain and swelling and you have risk factors for blood clots like advanced age or not being active or smoking

do you have any swelling in your calf?

do you have a doctor you can see who can order some testing to check for blood clots or strained muscle

damaged nerves in your legs or neuropathy can also cause pain in the calf area as well.
