how do you tell the difference between a blood clot and a pulled calf muscle?
there is pain and tenderness, seems warm to touch at times. Have tried to put a heel lift in to prevent some of the full stretch of my calf, is some better, but still somewhat painful and tender to touch

You don't. You go to the doctor who will know how to tell the difference.

Please take the advice of bmac. He is correct for the treatment of pulled muscles. If your calf is swollen and red, see a Doctor. It could be Phlebitis. That is a blood clot and is worth taking seriousely. I endured several weeks with the pain and suffering, before I went to my Doctor's office. I couldn't walk for the entire time.

If it's a blood clot, there would also be alot of swelling. Either way, you should consult your doctor. Blood clots can be DEADLY!!!


bmac
You'd have redness and a lot of swelling with a blood clot. And the pain is acute. Trust me--you would know it wasn't a pulled muscle. Just use a heating pad and take Aleve or Ibuprofen. Stretch it only when it's nice and warm.

LOL first don't listen to the guy talking about phlebitis as a blood clot, it is not a blood clot, phlebitis is inflamation of a vein. He can be forgiven however, as he is probably thinking of thrombophlebitis.

Secondly, you'd know if it was a blood clot because of the severe swelling of the limb, a shooting pain, and a general feeling of numbness of the leg as the tissue beyond the clot starts to die off from lack of adequate blood flow.

First put an ice pack on the muscle, to reduce the swelling...then put a heating pad as it helps to faciliate the immune response. As mentioned above, you can take aleve or ibuprofen, but NOT tylenol as it does jack for the inflammation. You'll want to keep the leg elevated.
