In brief: Needs to be seen

There are a variety of causes.
Compromised arterial or venous circulation is common, easy to diagnose, and usually treatable. If this is a peripheral neuropathy, which a physician can detect easily, finding the precise cause is one of the most challenging workups in medicine but needs to be done.

In brief: Depending on what

You mean by growing pain assuming a burning, tingling sensation you want to consider a neuropathy (pain arising from the nerves in the legs as from diabetes) v claudication or pain in legs due to a vascular issue v thecal sac or nerve root compression from spinal stenosis.
