Leg Pain

Hi all,
I have started today with a pain in my left leg just below the back of my knee. I am hobbling when I walk and my leg feels very achey! Just wondering if I should call the GP or nhs direct or just ride it out? I haven't done anything out of the ordinary.

Thanks smile

If you ever find out what it is, let me know! I've had the same thing for three days now.

They tested to see if I had a blood clot as my leg was swollen. Between 2.5-3cm bigger than the other. She said its either a pulled muscle or possibly a bakers cyst which she said will not improve so to go back if it continues. She gave me some naproxen which I've had 1 of and its eased a lot.
Hope your leg improves soon! Xx

Panicked then , checked, but mines not swollen. Had crossed my mind though.
Think mines a pulled muscle, pain better if I walk it off.
Hope yours is better soon too! X
