In addition to the previous 2 posts, your shoes could be adding to the cause. If they have a lot of miles on them and/or you weren't properly fitted for them, they can cause some serious pain.

I found that if I took a break about 5 min into my walk...and stretched by putting my foot up against a curb (heel as close as you can get it, toes up) and pushing my leg forward...that they resolved rather quickly. You can also try dropping your heels over a curb...but unless I had something to grab onto, I wasn't comfortable doing that. HOpe you get back to walking comfortably soon!!

Try the Spark article "tips and hints to deal with shin splints at www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness_artic
les.asp?id=611


The opening paragraph of the article notes they occur on both the inside and outside of the calf, so that would include your case.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

My right leg hurts right by my ankle and up to almost my knee on the outside of my leg.....couldn't finish my walk today. Looked up shin splints and it said they are usually on the inside of the calf....but mine is on the outside. Anyone else have this problem?
