I have a constant pain in both my calves. I had this pain since my childhood. During my childhood it was never this constant. I am professional tennis player and I am pretty fit. My feet are always very cold. To get relief from this pain I use to wrap my calves tightly for 20 minutes. After I removed the tape it felt good for a while. The pain is not unbearable, but at the same time, I feel it through out the day. Can anyone please tell me why this pain occurs?

  • First I would have your MD r/o a blood clot, we can get decease venous return, thus making our lower part of out body's cold, or perhaps your born with some sort of venous return, also get your potassium and magnesium checked, that's what I would do. Kim, RN- BSN
