In brief: Calf discomfort

One possibility is congestion in the calf veins which builds up during the day's activity on your feet.
Elevating the leg should relieve that discomfort,however. Irritability of calf nerves or muscles may be a cause. A blood clot in a calf vein usually is accompanied by swelling and tenderness. It's best to have a physician examine your leg and, if deemed advisable, get an ultrasound of the veins
