Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Depending on your age and physical status and activity this would either be signs of lumbar disc lesion or deep venous thrombus…
You will need to do MRI on back and dopplex on calf muscles to figure it out..
Redness and swelling in calf will be DVT ..numbness and pain would indicate disc lesion..
See a neurologist …

hi,
this may be due to slipped disc in the lumbar spine.this may be compressing the nerve that causes radiating pain in the legs.you should get a mri of lumbar spine done to confirm the diagnosis. use lumbosacral belt, take anti inflammatory tablets,hot fomentation,local gel.
consult a orthopedist.
thanks

Hello there
Pain and swelling indicates early signs if cellulitis. You should get blood checked for raised wbc counts and sugar levels. Keep the leg elevated. Apply magsulf glycerine paste to decrease the swelling. .consult a general surgeon

HI
THIS MAY OCCUR DUE TO BLOD VESSEL BLOCKAGES IN THE LOWER LIMB. A COLOR DOPPLER SHOULD BE DONE TO SEE FOR BLOCKAGES. LYPMHOEDEMA CAN ALSO PRESENT IN SIMILAR FASHION
