Have pain in leg. Later have pain in calf also. No medication till now. What to do?

I got a sudden pain in the back of my leg last night (behind my knee). Eventually it felt more like a very warm feeling/burning feeling within my leg (mostly my left thigh). It was pretty uncomfortable but not bad enough to keep me from sleeping. This morning the pain is gone but now it feels more like a pressure and a strange bubbling or fluttering feeling, now in my calf. Should I be concerned?

Thanks for posting your query.
From description pain and burning feeling over back of leg seems to be due to muscle spasm. It doesn't looks like serious. Apply muscle relaxant gel to affected area . Do hot saline fomatation and rest well.
Hope this will helps you.
Wishing you good health
