Right pain around my calf muscle

By Anonymous December 6, 2017 - 8:29pm

Last night my right calf was hurting, so I put some Ben-gay product on my calf muscle and rubbed it in. Then I took 2 tylenol for the pain. I woke up very uncomfortable and noticed that my right foot felt like it was hot and had a burning sensation. Is this something that I should be concerned? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hello Robin

Thank you for writing.

You may have pulled a muscle but since you are feeling heat, there is some risk you may have a clot forming or you have an infection. To be on the safe side, call your doctor.
