hey guys! New to this! About 6 weeks ago I started to get this awful aching in the back of my calf, felt like a muscle knot was really awful, I'm a smudge of a hypochondriac so thought it was a blood clot or something silly like that. However. I went to the doctors she said it's a pulled muscle. It went away after a few weeks, but I woke the other morning and my lower left back, all down my left thigh and my calf are now constantly on fire. It stays in my calf all day, it usually is worse when I'm sitting/laying down, I read online about sciatica but I haven't seen much about it mainly affecting the calf? My doc on a return visit said leave it and it sciatica, it will go away but sometimes tha pain is unbearable. Can anyone offer any advice/support? Can it just mainly affect your calf? It's like a numb tingling and very achy. Sometimes the back of the calf sometimes along the side.
