I quit smoking 66 days ago and over the last week and a half when I am walking within 5 minutes both legs (thigs and calves) begin to hurt and the outside (by the ankle bone and up the side of my right leg) hurts to the point I cannot keep going. I am maybe 20 pounds overweight . I did not start excessive exercising or anything after quitting, just walking more or trying to. My breathing coming up hills has greatly improved but now the leg pain has come. I am 49 years old, female.
