You do not have DVT! One negative d-dimer rules it out. Five is crazy! US is just frosting on the cake and not necessary. You have a leg cramp. That's all! Leg cramps are common and they hurt. Try stretching exercises to tone your leg muscles (try walking on tip-toes for 5 minutes twice a day) and when you lie down, keep your toes pointed up toward your nose, not down toward the bottom of the bed
