Working out pains

I am trying to starting working in some exercise into my routine and I'm coming up against a problem. After about 15-20 mins of working out my legs start to cramp and HURT. I am stretching beforehand, but it seems that no matter how much I do I still have this problem. It's really curbing my workouts because I even though don't feel winded or exhausted, I have to stop because my legs simply hurt too much.

Does this happen to anyone else? Any suggestions on an exercise that won't do this? It happens whether I'm walking briskly, running or even just dancing around my living room. Or any stretching techniques that may help avoid this? Or is it just something I have to push through and eventually my body will get used to it?
