Thank you for the information,
There can be muscle pain like muscle strain or pull.
A nerve impingement is also possible.
However, pain in one calf can come from a clot or DVT too.
I would advise to take an urgent examination by doctor.
Clot can cause serious complication, if it is there.
A few tests like ultrasound, d dimer can be needed.
You can take a tylenol, meanwhile.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
