I have been having this pain on the inside of my lower left leg, it hurts to touch it, it hurts more when I walk mostly when I get up after sitting a while. It just started last week, and has progressvly gotten worse, has anyone had anything similar, I have been looking it up and cant find any answers. My mom thought maybe vericose veins, but I dont feel any that are sticking out or anything.Answer Question
Pain on the front inside lower portion of the shin is the condition commonly referred to as “shin splints”, and can be treated quite easily. However, pinpoint pain directly on the shin bone (Tibia) should be evaluated by a doctor to rule out any kind of stress fracture. If you are in doubt you should consult your health care provider. Bear with me here and I'll give you some info from the hand out I use in my practice (as a certified Athletic Trainer - sports medicine specialist)

OK... hope that helps!! The most important thing to do here is to make sure your shoes have the correct arch support... it's really the key!! I say that from both personal and professional experience. I had this once and it comes back if I don't have good shoes with proper arch support. I have flat feet, but MUST add arch support to all my shoes and sneakers. You DO NOT have to be an athlete to get this!! As always if you have any doubts, concerns or this doesn't help please see your doc!! Good luck ;o)

"shin splint" pain can be felt along the bone... like where the muscle attaches to the bone... quite often it's being referred thru the membrane that holds your two lower leg bones "together". It's often in teh place where it seems you don't have muscle. But, it can be different for everyone. Best to see your doc to rule out a vein or nerve issue if your gut says that's is what it is!!
