calf pain with cast/Jones fracture

I broke my 5th metatarsel (Jones fracture) 4 weeks ago and have been in a cast with crutches this entire time.
Things are going well, considering.
My question is that when I get up from either lying down or sitting with my leg elevated I get an intense pain in my calf.
Is this due to the change in blood flow?
Is this due to the calf muscle atrophy?
The pain is not present when I am lying down or when my leg is elevated.
What are your thoughts?

    You may be swelling against the cast. You might talk to your doctor about this.
