Severe shooting pain in left thigh. History of leg cramps. Due to blood clot?

Last night I woke up with an excruciating pain shooting through the front of my left thigh upwards. It was unlike any pain I have ever had. It truly was painful...I was hysterical. I ve had night leg cramps before but this was nothing like these. The pain lasted about 15 minutes and then went away. I am 55 years old. Could this be a blood clot?
