Sudden unprovoked severe calf muscle pain

When walking on the pavement and without any warning there was a sudden pain in my left calf muscle and I could not put any weight on the foot without a searing pain in the lower calf.
Eventually I could only only make forward progress by placing all my weight on the heel and with the knee straight. I am not unfit and have completed several 15 mile walks, some over pretty steep terrain so my legs are used to a bit of a workout but this problem occured during a "gentle stroll" The pain is not evident when at rest but as soon as weight is placed on the foot the pain is there immediately.
Been with me now for 5 days and is improving albeit slowly, any ideas please.
