Something is wrong: Anytime you have pain, there is something wrong. There are a few possibilities. It could be the foot pain comes first, i.E plantar fascitis and as a result you are compensating or walking differently and then getting the leg pain. Knowing if you are flatfooted or have a high arch would help but in either case an orthotic might help. A nerve problem should also be ruled out.
