Nerve or Vascular: The condition may be nerve or vascular in origin. The description of "sharp" pain while laying down may be related to position and the result of a nerve compression. However, another considering is that this could be vascular related the result of a clot and/or restriction of blood flow. Talk to your primary care physician either way, but if chronic, consider urgent care/er.

You name it...: You would have to be more specific as to what is the exact nature, location, duration, onset, course, associated symptoms, and timing. It could just be the beginning of arthritis, muscle pains, nerve impingement, sprains, strains, etc.

Usually calf pain: Many times "lower leg pain" refers to a diagnosis to rule out a blood clot in the deep vein in the calf, even though it can be a muscle cramp or tissue injury or venous insufficiency or arterial claudication, etc. So the patient needs to see a doctor to decide what is causing this pain.
