>Health and Nutrition>Pain in area where shin meets ankle
started about a mile into a run yesterday...felt like someone was ripping the hair from the area...checked sock and top of shoe tongue and nothing, re-tied shoe, kept going...continued to hurt and is sore today to the touch or if I wear shoes...walking in flip flops is fine(tender) and barefoot..feels sore in that tendon area when I press.

Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.
And...if you want a running Instagram where all the pictures are of cats, I've got you covered.
an amazing likeness
And...if you hear or feel a squeaking in the tendons at the front of your lower leg when you dorsaflex your foot, you can bet your bottom dollar that darkwave's diagnosis is spot on.
Acceptable at a dance, invaluable in a shipwreck.
It could be just a little tweak. If skin is sore to touch it may be a nerve irritation. Don't run a few day or until no discomfort with walking. Then heat up area good and go out for a 1 mile easy test run. If that is cool, you can get back to your normal plan in 2-3 days. Don't ignore.

Ugh, I hope darkwave is not right. I had that, and it took over a year for it to stop hurting entirely. Really torpedoed me. PT was not helpful AT ALL and I'm still paying the bill for it.
not bad for mile 25
Well, I had what must have been a very mild case of it. It cleared up in a couple of weeks.
Oh, that's good!
Nice it is indeed a good information to share!
thanks for all the input.
it seems indeed what darkwave mentioned...much better now, just more sore than pain with socks and shoes.
