What causes sharp pain on the knee and calf?

I get a sahrp pain that runs from the bottom of the knee through the calf down to my second from last toe. It does not do it all the time, might be a couple weeks between. But when it does it is very painful. The muscles do not get stiff but i can not walk and usually lasts from 5 seconds to 20 seconds.

As first-line management, you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.
If symptoms persist, it is better to consult a physician and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
