Customer Question

I am a 55 year old woman experiencing throbbing in my lower left leg calf muscle. The throbbing started in bed this morning around 8:30. It has been continuous. It is now 11:18 AM. It occurs while sitting and standing. Could this be a blood clot that needs immediate attention or could it be from sitting at my desk for long periods of time? Sometimes I sit on my legs at my desk while I am using the computer. Generally I am in good health.
