Pain in the calf and waist area can be caused by various causes. From the situation you are experiencing, it may be caused by a pinched nerve.
Nerve pinching or commonly referred to as HNP is a condition where there is pinching of nerves by the spinal column. Nerve entrapment can occur in various places on the spine, which in your case may occur in the area around the waist. Nerve entrapment is more common in people who are obese, do strenuous exercise, often lift heavy weights, or have a history of trauma to the spine. A pinched nerve can cause a variety of symptoms, such as:
pain in the lumbar region, pain can radiate to the legs and the genital area, weakness in the legs, tingling if your condition is caused by a nerve entrapment, then treatment is usually required using nerve pain medication, and certain anti-inflammatory drugs according to your situation.
But apart from that, the situation you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
muscle cramps (accumulation of lactic acid) side effects of certain drugs peripheral artery disease (PAD) autoimmune disease bone tumor infection therefore to determine the cause of the condition you are experiencing then you should consult a specialist in internal medicine or a neurologist so that the doctor can examine your situation further. There may be additional examinations such as blood tests, X-rays, or MRI if necessary.
It is recommended that you stretch every morning, especially before exercising. Warm compresses on the painful area. Do not smoke. Adjust the temperature of the bedroom so that it is not too cold.
