Regards Lybrate user. The pain in the shin area may be due to overworking of your muscles due to incline walking.

Body takes time to adapt and grow. If the pain is in the bone, please check for tender spots. If present, you may need to lower activity below pain threshold. If pain is in muscles, adding stretching and strengthening exercises may help.

The shin is the frontal part of the lower leg and runs from slightly below the knee almost all the way to the foot. This area takes a lot of stress during movements such as walking and running and most forms of exercises of the lower body. Any other form of movement where the weight of the upper body has to be transferred to the feet also involves the shin. Thus repeated stresses may sometimes take their toll resulting in shin splints which can be quite painful.

If you have leg pain then you have to rule out the causes for having leg pain. First of all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels, as anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there are no issues with the knee joint or back pain. If not if the pain radiates down the back of thigh and legs then it might be due to sciatica. Kindly consult the nearby physiotherapist. Hope you recover soon from the leg pain.

- apply pain relief gel three times a day
- take a pain relief tablet after meals 2-3 times a day
- get x-ray of the affected area to rule out any bony injury.
