DVT: Hi, if your ultrasound is negative then it's very unlikely to have blood clot in leg, most likely you have some sort of muscle tiredness and cramping due to overuse, trauma due to exercise, dehydration, electrolyte imbalance but most likely reason would be overuse of the muscles in leg.

Plantar Fascitis?: Where exactly "on the bottom of the foot". If its the bottom of the heel you might have plantar fasciitis with concomitant Achilles tendon tightening which can cause cramping of the calf and lower thigh. I suggest seeing a Podiatrist and also getting a nerve conduction velocity test to check your nerves. Lastly to rule out blood clot an ultrasound of the lower leg should be performed.
