am I normal?

SO I was walking with my daughter the other day and noticed how bad my lower legs hurt just walking.we were walking fast,and I noticed my lower legs feel heavy or just sore when I walk is this normal? I'm wondering if maybe I have clots in my legs that are making my legs feel like this or is that ridiculous?

  • Did you stretch before you walked? That's important.

  • Agreed, stretching before and after is important.

    It could be shin splints. Try icing your legs for a bit, take an ibuprofen, and relax.

  • Fluid build up in your legs. When you sit for long periods of time, rotate your ankles several times to encourage good blood flow.
