I'm a seventeen year old and my calf just recently started hurting a week ago. I used to work out three times a week but stopped when summer started. The pain goes from the middle of my calf and moves around in my lower leg sometimes even my ankle. When working I stand for long periods of time during the day, and just recently my ankle has been hurting so badly that I need to sit down. My calf hurts when I lay down too so I can barely get any sleep with all the stress. There is no swelling, no bruises or discoloration, Im good on the calcium, and no coughing up blood (so no pulmonary embolism?). I have been feeling light headed but I do have numerous anxiety attacks that like to pop out of nowhere. I'm just very worried because I can't afford to go to the doctor especially of this turns out to be nothing! But I'm also worried about having a blood clot! I don't know what to do please help!!!
