Would the pain from a blood clot in calf be constant or painful?

Painless

Blood
The dangerous blood clots that move to lungs (embolism ) due to deep vein thrombosis will give barely discomfort or none. phlebitis of superficial veins will give pain may take wks to subside, do not embolize, due to valves in the superficial veins.

I get a painful lump in my left calf while getting up in the morning. It disappears almost immediately but some pain remains there. What is it?

Assuming

Leg
This isn't a muscle spasm that improves with stretching out, transient muscle herniation through the fascia that surrounds the muscle can occur. The muscle can then reduce through the fascial defect. Ultrasound can be useful in diagnosing these.

I PMR and fibromyalia, i wake up with pain too much. Eariler, I woke with painful knot on upper right side of calf near knee.what caused this?

Pain

Fibromyalgia
Give it some time and do ur normal activities. We all experience a new pain flare up now and then. If it is still there in a few days then ask the question again. Patients w fibro tend to be overly focused on their bodies sensitivity to pain.

Overnight I've had sharp pain in my right calf lasting a minute or do but very painful it's like electric shocks.i have a lot of back problems?

See below

Calf
This sounds like it is probably an irritated nerve in your back that starts firing spontaneously when you are in certain positions. This would be my leading guess although you need a good physical exam and review of your back problems. This is usually a treatable condition, often with medications that decrease nerve irritability.

Painful scar tissue left under atypical mole removal spot on calf. Sharp, deep pain. Dermatologist recommended plastic surgeon. What will happen?

Painfulll scar

Anabolic_steroids
The plastic surgeon will evaluate the scar for hypertrophy, keloid or the possibility of neuroma. If it is a neuroma than revision surgery may be indicated. If it is just a hypertrophic scar or a keloid then treatment may include intralesional steroid injection or combination of steroid and 5-FU, massage or light therapy. Please follow up with a boar certified plastic surgeon for proper evaluation

3 wks post acl/meniscus/knee cartillage repair I still hav calf /back of knee pain & swells.beyond 85 deg of knee fold is painful. is this normal?

Depends

Leg
if you had your own hamstring harvested then pain at 3 weeks back there is reasonable. if you didn't and it is painful and there is a lot of swelling then you should see your physician to make sure there is no blood clot back there. usually patients take aspirin or a blood thinner to prevent a clot.
