You could be having mild cramps. You need to avoid starting exercise without warmup. Drink plenty of water and electrolyte fluid atleast an hour or two before exercise. Keep away from junk food. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables with essential vitamins and minerals to prevent cramps. Drink plenty of water. Take frequent breaks during exercise. You can apply pain killing gel to affected area when you get severe pain.
