  • I hope you have been to see your doctor.It sounds like something has torn - causing blood leakage into the area.

  • Has the pain in your calf gotten any better yet? Does the calf muscle feel extremely tight or is there a lump in the calf?

  • Have your postassium levels checked. Low levels cause severe cramping in the calves like you describe... Kiera

  • In response to the bruising, I’ve been using this stuff on my kids for a while that’s been working great. They both play soccer so they get cuts and bruises on their legs often, not to mention they’re just generally rough when they play. I was reffered to this stuff called bruiseMD (you can find it through google) by another mother at school. The ingredients are all natural and it works quickly so it’s a great bruise remedy. Hope that helps!
