Brief Answer:
Can be due to electrolyte imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain and weakness in the leg muscles can be due to a bone spur in the heel or due to muscle cramps.
Sometimes, it can be due to dehydration, muscle fatigue or electrolyte abnormalities. It is better to drink sufficient fluid and also see that your intake of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium ) is sufficient. You can drink Oralyte for this.
In case the pain is persistent then you can get oral muscle relaxants prescribed from your physician.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
