Hi there. The problem you are facing is calf muscle cramps causing pain. It is usually short term. There are
various causes for it like, sudden, improper stretching of calf muscle, may be due to fatigue, or may be due
to over exertion or sometimes cold weather precipitates it. Sometimes varicose veins & cellulites also
cause calf muscle pain. Conservative management is successful in most of the cases, like complete bed rest
until pain subsides, cold pack or ice cubes application .for reducing the swelling, wearing elastic
compression bandages & keeping the leg at a height above heart level. If persistent, I suggest you to take
consultation with general surgeon. Hope my advice helpful to you. Take care.
