Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the calf area can be caused due to problems in the structure contained in the calf area, such as bones, muscles, nerves, skin, for example conditions:
Muscle pain (myalgia) due to physical fatigue
Injury to the calf area
Pinch to nerves in the calf area
Nerve disorders due to lack of nutrition in the nerve area of the calf
Skin pain after shingles infection
To determine the cause of your complaint, you should consult a general practitioner first. If necessary the doctor will do an x-ray of the foot or refer you to a chiropractor for further tracking.
As for what you should do:
Limit physical activity
Avoid massaging the area of pain if the cause is due to injury or infection
Elevate legs while sleeping
Cold compresses painful area
Over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol can be used to reduce pain
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
