The calf of the leg refers to the lower leg below the knee and above the ankle.Calf pain causes are many, including disease, over straining the connecting muscles during sports activities and injury. Calf pain when walking at a fast pace or calf pain while running or after running can be caused by fatigued calf muscles or lactic acid build up in the calf muscles due to the lack of oxygen and poor blood circulation. Lower calf pain is a common complaint among barefoot runners because of muscle overload caused by increased impact to the area. Calf muscles will feel tight and ache-y which may last for many days. Calf pain at night often happens after a calf muscle cramp, spasm or disease such as arthritis.
