In brief: Claudication

Depending on what you mean by spasms this could be a serious condition.
Pain in the calves can be do to what we call claudivcation. There are 2 main types, vascular and neurogenic. Depending on your age and other medical problems either is possible. If you are an athlete both are unlikely. Other causes of calf spasm could be electrolyte imbalance and or taking medications for high cholesterol.
