Annoying problem

I have this problem, when walking sometimes. The thing is, sometimes when I walk - especially if I'm not paying attention to my walking and not in a hurry, I get into a rhythm by which I can walk for miles and miles without a problem. But there are other times when I lose the rhythm and even walking a few blocks makes the whole bottom section of my legs sore. And the worst part is, I don't know for sure what causes it, and I don't know what to do when it starts. And once it starts, it's hard to stop. Also, if it gets bad enough, just standing up hurts like hell. And if it's bad enough, my legs continue to ache after sitting down.

I've noticed it happens more frequently when I'm in a hurry, but not always. It happens more frequently when I'm paying conscious attention to the process of walking, but other times that doesn't do it. Sometimes, walking with a slight back-and-forth rocking motion eases the pain and can even stop the pain; but other times, that doesn't work.

I'm starting to wonder if I should mention this to my doctor, maybe she can at least figure out a possible explanation for it. About the only thing I know for sure about it is that I never had this problem before Portland, and I didn't start having the problem until after the first time I sprained my ankle. (And it's happened a few times since then.) I don't know if there's a connection there or not, but it's too... well, too something to dismiss as coincidence.
