Depends: What exercise were doing? Any pain during or only after? How long does it last? Any repetitive activity can lend itself to an overuse syndrome. Severe muscle cramping can occur after endurance exercise is most often related to dehydration or electrolyte imbalance. Repetitive impact can result in a stress injury. Pre-existing back problems can worsen with repetitive jarring and aggravate a nerve.

Depends on exercise.: It depends on gthe exercise you might have been doing. Repetitive motion might put pressure on some joints and bones over time and cause pain, as well as the sudden relief of the action. The muscles may need relief. This might be a circulation issue or a plantar fasciitis issue with pain from weight on your foot and lower leg. Sports make you use all your muscles, etc.. Be more diverse.
