It sounds like cramps. I get cramps in my legs during the night, and it is really painful. I don't think all GPS, especially male ones are very sympathetic about the pain. The cramp pain I have had is awful. If it is what you are having, does it come on suddenly? If so try rubbing your leg, although it's still painful for a few minutes it does help and the pain subsides. If it was DVT it would get worse and be red and swollen. If you've had an accident or flown on a plane the chances of DVT are higher. If you are still worried about it, speak to your midwife or try and see another GP.
