You may need: to get checked for a blood clot or muscle injury. Given the amount of activity you put your calves through, and hydration, I doubt it is from sedentary lifestyle or dehydration :) Go see a healthcare provider to get tests and if they are all negative, keep walking and being active!! I love it !!
