I've noticed in the past two weeks that my calves ache at the end of the day. When I come home and put my feet up, both of my calves ache and are really sore. I think it might have something to do with my back, but I'm not sure. I googled leg pain and came up with a bajillion ideas on what it might be, but none of them are exactly what I'm feeling. My legs aren't hot, red, swollen or discolored. My feet and ankles aren't swollen and when I went to the doctor last month, all of my potassium, vitamin D and calcium levels were fine. I had lumbar fusion 2 1/2 years ago and I've been having problems with my back for about 2 weeks, or about the same amount of time as I've been having leg aches. Maybe it's a symptom of this DD, but I don't know. Anyone else go thru this?
