Hi!
If the pain started suddenly then you could have probably injured a muscle at the juncture between gastrocnemius muscle (inner part of your calf muscle) and the Achilles' tendon. Apply this ice several times a day for 5-10 minutes for about 72 hours after injury. After this apply compression bandage. All the time rest your legs as much as possible and keep them elevated. Once the pain subsides you will need to start stretch exercises. However, please do not try these on your own and consult a doctor.
Another possibility is Achilles tendinosis. This is treated with NSAIDs, rest and orthotics or specially designed foot wear to ease the pressure off the tendon.
It is difficult to diagnose on the net. Please consult an orthopedic specialist. Take care!
