Hi, I'm new to this and am unsure where to post this, but here goes.
A few months ago I developed a large unexplained bruse on my calf that didn't hurt and I had no idea where it came from. After a couple of weeks it went away. A few weeks later, I went on a trip to Florida and while walking around the parks my calf started to pain. After a few days my leg started to go numb so I went to the hospital, where they did an ultrasound that came up negative. I then just rested for the remainder of my trip and went home, where the pain slowly got better.
Between then and now my calf has pained slightly every now and then, but nothing to concerning. However, recently my leg has really started to hurt.
It's fine in the morning but as the day goes on and I'm walking around a bit, my leg become more painful, initially starting from the calf but spreading to other parts of my leg such as the lower leg to thigh. The pain does not go away with resting throughout the day, but seems to stay the same. By nighttime it gets pretty bad and I am limping a fair bit. However, once I sleep, the next morning the leg is fine. My doctor says that it's just muscle related but the pain feels too weird to be just strained or torn. I'm not an athlete and this never happened before, so I'm not very familiar with what torn muscles would feel like anyway
Also, along with the pain, my leg feels heavy and numb
Any help would be appreciated and would help ease my mind, thanks
