Calf Pain-Calf Cramp-The same?

Just one question: Does someboy know the difference between calf pain and calf cramp always at night? Is calf pain more familiar with Restless Legs e.g.? I do not have cramps but pain in both calves during nights together with twitches all over the body since two weeks now not related to exercise the day before. I had this two months before then it stopped for almost three weeks. Had passed different clinical neuro exams+ several EMGs (both legs and hands) with no findings of anything unnormal. My two Neuros hold the opinion that it is realated to stress and anxiety due to ALS-fears. ALS had been ruled out by them and they considered BFS as the most fitting explanation to both twitching and calf pain at night. Should I close the book?

Had anybody made the same experiences or could kindly give me his thoughts regarding this matter?

Thank you very much and all the best to you!
