For the past 6 weeks I have been experiencing pain in the back of my knee and down my calf muscle in my right leg.
If i rest either with my feet up or down, when I go to stand my leg from my knee to my foot is very stiff and sore. I am unable to kneel as it feels like a massive burst of pain behind the knee into my calf muscle as if i have severly sprained it. When standing, if i transfer any weight onto my right leg, i get pain from the back of the knee right down my calf. It is a constant pain when any weight is bearing on it but if i kneel or bend the leg with weight on it, the pain is like a muscle pull and extremely painful.
When walking there is no pain at all.
I am confused because i have not injured or sprained the leg at all.
I do suffer from sciatica now and again in my back and left leg and the pain is totally different.
I have tried taking anti-inflammatory tablets and this does not ease the pain.
Should I be worried and see a doctor.
