HEIDISHOPE - Try doing some dynamic stretching warm-ups as well as stretching after your walk. This will help ready the muscles. Try leg swings, walking lunges, walking on your heels for 25 steps, walking on your toes 25 steps and toe raises.
Drink an electrolyte product such as Gatorade or SmartWater either during or after your walk. This will help replace any you lose.
STSCOTT11's correct, it is more than likely your muscles just rebelling a bit from a good workout. My mom used to use Ibuprofen when this would keep her up, it helps relax the body a bit.
If it continues, do ask your doctor about other things you can try.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
- Helen Keller
Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.
