Calf pain..very common in peri manupausal females...possible causes are early varicose veins, perforator incompetence, weak gastro soleus muscle complex, osteoporosis or any and all in combination..but to get relief the best is to strengthen the lower limb muscles...ankle pumping exercises..limb elevation over two pillow at night time...avoid sitting on floor...if no relief then bring her once for consultation...
