Patient :I started the pill 3 days ago, and had about 10 minutes worth of acute pain today in my right calf that felt like a pulled muscle. Should I go back to my doctor? Can clotting happen this fast? I have also had a little bit of pain on my forearms in a small area. Same place on both arms, just above my wrist on the underside. It is after hours for my doctor so I'm unsure as to what to do.
