I had my right leg treated 4 days ago & since day 1 I have experienced muscle pain & tenderness in my calf. Occasionally, I have muscle spasms & today my ankle hurts as though it is sprained. It has been difficult to walk. Is this normal or serious?

Not the usual.
Contact your provider, you may need a check for blood clot depending on what procedure was done.

It is very difficult to say what your symptoms are from. If you had topical sclerotherapy only to the surface spider veins, it is unlikely that is the cause of the symptoms. If you had larger feeder veins, larger diameter veins (reticulars or varicose veins) you may have tenderness from some inflammation of the treated veins or trapped blood. Muscle pain and tenderness in your calf should be evaluated by your treating physician with ultrasound whether it is related to the treatments or not to rule out DVT. There are a lot of variables in treating spider veins and different solutions. I highly recommend seeing your treating doctor for a follow-up.

It is not unusual to have some discomfort after sclerotherapy, however you should contact your provider and he should repeat a Doppler ultrasound to make sure there are not clot in the deep veins.

Difficult to determine whether there is something deeper going on. Should
have an ultrasound done to make sure no DVT.

This is not normal. You should follow up with the physician who injected your veins for an evaluation to rule out DVT or some other reason for the discomfort.
