I have been experiencing pain from my lower back to my thigh from exercising and some of the exercises included bicycle crunches and scissor exercises. I wasn’t able to stand straight or bend down as it hurt. A few weeks went past and I am able to stand straight a little better and bend, but the pain has started to travel to my legs such as my calves and ankles.
The symptoms of the pain I experience is tightness and cramps in my thighs and my ankle feels like someone’s gripping them. I find it hard to walk properly as it’s painful to do this. I have called a doctor about this and they said to wait a few weeks and put some muscle pain gel and take medication, but it’s been painful for more than a month and I am finding it difficult to walk at times and it’s on one leg. My calves are hurting especially when I walk any help or advice please

I would call the doctor back rather than asking for advice from strangers, the muscles should've recovered by now if it was still a muscular issue, assuming you're resting fully

No-one can diagnose you at distance on the internet without having examined you, and you should be wary of anyone who tries.

If it hasn't improved in this time, I'd contact your GP again, with a view to some physiotherapy or other intervention.
