Thanks for staying online.

I am posting my answer below-

Well, such symptoms can be related with these possibilities-

1. Muscle cramp- These are sudden, painful contractions of the muscles. They can be brief or last for several minutes at a time.

2. Muscle strain.

Such symptoms can occur with-Imbalance in Calcium , Magnesium , Sodium and potassium levels in blood. Dehydration can also be a cause.

Also it is possible that you may have problem with the nerves in your lower back, and it is causing radiating pain in calf muscle.

For the time, you should take Tab. Vit. B Complex and Cap. Vitamin E as supplements and you should not stand for a long time.

If you have associated swelling. redness, skin discoloration, feeling of warmth in the calf, than it can be related with blood clot.

You will be requiring blood tests , nerve conduction studies , doppler/ultrasound.

Please see your primary doctor for clinical evaluated.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
