Electric shock sensation from hip to leg. Soreness in calf, hurts to walk. Suggestions?

Last week I was walking and felt what I can only describe as an electrical shock going down my leg. It started about the hip area and traveled down the side of my leg and then behind the knee and stopped at the lower calf area. Ever since, I have had a soreness in my calf and when I walk, it hurts and I walk with a limp. It even hurts at night.
