Burning sensation indicates nerve involvement.

So your symptoms are associated with nerve compression in it's path which supplies this area.

Other possible cause may include Neurodermatitis.

As you are suffering from last few weeks and persistent symptoms throughout the day so you shouldn't ignore it and see your regular doctor for a clinical examination.

You should take OTC Motrin and Claritin.

You should do calves stretching exercises.

Also take potassium and magnesium rich supplement.

Hope this helps.
