Thanks for posting your query.

Before I answer your question, I need some more information of your symptoms and previous history to make a possible diagnosis.

* Please clearly elaborate your symptoms
* Is pain is associated with tingling and numbness?
* Do you have any associated illnesses?
* Are you taking any medications right now for any other health issues?
* Any history of trauma or injury to your legs?
* Have you any weakness in legs?
* Pain in any other joint.
Also let me know your age.

It seems that you are having pain in your calves specially after walking. It can happen due to-
1. Calf muscle strain and tear - Usually due to overwork and overstretching of the muscles. Recent increase in leg exercises may cause these. Gradual increase in exercise and pain killers with mild symptoms.
2. Muscle ischaemia- There is acute pain associated with it.
3. Deep vein thrombosis- comes last among the list of probable diagnosis.
You may get the initial physical examination, relevant tests and treatment done under care of 'Orthopaedician'.

Hope this will helps you. Let me know if you have any more concern.

Wishing you good health.
