Blood Clot?
Nov 15, 2010
This has just recently happened within the last day or two. I was sitting on the couch and when I went to stand up, I felt a sharp pain similar to a muscle cramp in the back of my calf, a few inches under my knee. It's not a constant pain, and I only notice it when there's a strain on my calf muscles, like when I'm tensing the muscle or stretching a bit too far. I also occasionally have a strange rippling sensation if I press down on the area too hard. My mom thinks it's a blood clot, but I haven't noticed any warm sensations or swelling of the area since I first noticed the pain. Could it simply be a Charlie horse?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
