I've been getting a burning sensation in my left lower leg, not shin, not calf but the outer side from ankle to almost level with the knee. It actually happens on the walk up the slight incline to the gym. At first it was ok once I got running, and all gone on the walk home.
Over the last week it's started to be there whenever I walk, on the flat...routes that I was doing fine before, and in whatever footwear I happen to have on.
Today on the walk to the gym it was both legs. It's really painful and I get a bit limpy and even felt a bit sicky. Today wasn't a running day, I was there for yoga, but I found I still had the pain on the walk home.
Could this be shin splints? It's not actually on my shin though so not sure? What's the advice with running when experiencing leg pain?
