Lower Limb Pain

I am a healthy 63 year old female - no blood pressure or cholestrol problems - I do not take estrogen I am woken up nearly every morning round about 4/5 a.m. with pains in my lower limbs. The only relief for this is by getting up and walking around for a while. It is difficult for me to get back to sleep after this. I exercise 3/4 times a week and am not overweight. I take multivitamins, etc.
What could be the cause of this? Could it be too much calcium intake. I take 2 Calcitrate daily.
Thanks for your help
