Please see below: It depends. This symptom might be caused either by the peripheral nerve or nerve root irritation. You might benefit from seeing your local neurologist in consultation and have electrodiagnostic studies of the legs performed for the establishment of the nature of your condition.

Leg burning: It can be due to fatique and "lactate" production by your leg muscles which can give a burning/aching workout feeling... Additionally, it can be due to reduced bloodflow during heavy workouts, esp. If there are vascular diseases in the family. A nerve problem in the lower back can give neurogenic clauication or cramps when upright and working out, so see your doctor to give him details of the pain.
