Inflammation: Finger pain and warmth can be caused by inflammation. When your finger is injured, your body tries to heal the injury by sending body fixers to the site. More body fixers reach the site when you make the highway, your blood vessels, bigger. The bigger blood vessels cause the feelings of warmth and pulsation.

Tight Calf Muscles!: The reason your calf hurts is how tight the entire muscle group is. When you stand on your toes, the calf muscle contracts, and if it is tight, then you may have pain. Performing runners' stretches are very beneficial and should help reduce the pain. If it continues, seek medical treatment with a podiatrist.
