In brief: Dehydration?

When there is a simultaneous bilateral problem, think what could be happening that would affect my whole system via my blood stream? Dehydration can cause bilateral calf spasticity, especially if you're low on electrolytes.
Also, the onset of a virus is systemic and could cause this. If your pain is improving hour by hour just wait, if it's getting worse, seek medical help ASAP. Good luck!
