What Causes Pain In Thighs And Calves Of Legs?

Hi Doctor Siegel! I am 23 years old and used to run track in high school. I have barely exercised in college - and when I do now, later on in the day I have pain in my legs. It is not muscular pain, though. It s a pain that travels down the back of my thighs to my calves and also the front of my thighs have a little pain. I have very slight back issues as well and am afraid that I may be pinching some nerves or something. Do you have any ideas? Thank You!

don't start all together.
start your running- distance and speed gradually .
do a warm-up before starting your running training
taking hot water bath after the exercise will help to relieve the spasm
