Hi lybrate-user. What I can understand by your complaint is that most probably you are having shin splints. Along with it there can be other aggravating factors or causes such as reduced muscle strength, flexibility and endurance, plantar fascitis, reduced or no medial arch of foot (Flat Foot), etc. I suggest you consult a Physiotherapist personally, so that a complete physical assessment is done and proper treatment can be provided.
