Thanks for replying.
I am typing your reply.Shall answer shortly.
There are few common possible causes.
One possibility is this being neurogenic claudication.
Underlying cause of neurogenic claudication is compression on the spinal cord or spinal nerves in lower spine.This typically causes pain on walking as the space available for the cord and nerves decreases when walking.The space increases on sitting and that is why pain decreases on sitting or lying down.
Other possible cause is vascular claudication where the blood supply to the leg decreases as a result of blood vessels getting narrowed.This is more common with diabetics.
This can just be a muscle spasm but a muscle spasm can cause pain even when you change leg position.
You can try a short course of anti inflammatory medicine like advil for few days.If pain does not improve you need to get this examined by a doctor.
