Thanks for posting your query.
The sensation that you have described in the calf is likely to be related to muscle cramps. It can happen due to the injury or an electrolyte imbalance or a decreased fluid intake.
The pain that you have described is likely to be a muscular pain. Most of the times it can be taken care of with adequate rest, mild pain killers and hot fomentation. In case the pain is persistent then consult your physician and get some muscle relaxants prescribed.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
