If you had a blood clot the pain wouldn't come and go.  It sounds sound a bit like nerve pain, the shock sensation.  Unpleasant as that is it will go away on its own.  Stop worrying about it, stop moving your leg around to see if you can still feel it (I'm guessing you're doing that, apologies if you aren't, but it seems like a lot of people with blood clot worries seem to spend a lot of time seeing if it still hurts!), it'll probably sort itself out.

Today have not had much any pain or sensations. But it just came back with revenge, damn. Now theres some odd sensation behind knee, all kinds of almost cramping feelings etc. Is it moving? Thought aleeady I can let this one go....

I had a blot clot in my lungs that came from my calf. I broke my ankle at work and was bedridden for awhile, and not moving around caused to to form.  Unless you had and injury to the area and are immobile I wouldn't worry.  If you unusually become short of breath and have a racing heartbeat you might want to get your O2 checked at a clinic or ER.

I had a similar problem to you a month ago. My calf felt tight, sometimes sore and came and went most of the time. Now I went to the doctor and she told me that I had a case of anxiety. With a blood clot your leg would swell and become hot and red. My leg now is fine and has the odd flare of tension but since I know it is nothing, it doesnt worry me anymore and I can cope. I too had it in the back of the knee and like you I was terrified about the sensations but with anxiety, you will get these sensations and your thoughts about it, make it much worse.

Go and see your doctor if you need your mind at ease :) It certainly helps to talk about it because they are professionals and will be able to tell if you have one or not.

My former co-worker had a blood clot in her calf from an injury and
it was swollen, red, felt hot and was painful.

I'm having the exact issue and it has persisted for going on a month. . I went to get a emg done on both my arm and my leg to check for nerve damage as the issue has been isolated to my left side. My arm they discovered I have Ulnar nerve entrapement but couldn't find anything wrong nerve wise with my leg, so I'm guessing from that its a muscular/skeleton issue.

Are you overweight? I have about 30lbs extra on me according to Bmi indicator. I'm also not as active as I would like to be and I'm on the computer for 8+ hours a day on a normal day due to work. I sit cross legged and that's something that should be considered a long time sitting on one foot; its that side that is bothering me. Another this is I went to see a doctor who didn't think it was a clot, its been going on for a month so if it was a clot you would think it would have worsened. Another thing is that its not always bothersome, some days worse then others and then sometimes it feels completely normal. the physio Im seeing says he thinks its related to lower back and when he adjusts me he can tell that its much tigher then the other one, so as far as that goes atleast I know its not in my head, but it can still be a result of stress none the less.
