My left leg calf crampy after long car ride, how to get rid of it ?

Okay well I got home from a 10 hr road trip on Monday. My left calf feels very crampy. It has gotten better since Monday but still feels crampy. I got out a few times and stretched during the trip. I'm paranoid of blood clots. I talked to my Dr and she didn't seemed concerned. So should i be worried?

I have a blood clot in the left leg it was detected June 2 of 2010. It was found in the Hunter's Canal.

I have been trying hard to figure out how I got that, since when I don't fit into any of the groups of people getting them.

But, this morning I had a thought I traveled to Gerogia, USA four people drove in the same car and I was the only person that wasn't allowed to drive for whatever reason. I sat in the back seat behind the driver. The trip was 16 there and and back and we stopped twice. This trip occurred in March of 2010.

Could this have been the cause of the clot? Since I don't fit into any of the other groups. I am very active I am not a senior yes I am over weight according to the BMI.

It is due to impaired circulation and you need not worry for that now. Keep your leg raised, that shall help you. Use a crape bandage as well.
