    Pain, burning in the shin?

    I visited my family physician and told him of a pain I developed in my shin (immediately to the right of my shin bone) which feels as if it is burning.  It feels like a shin splint would feel but hurts most when I elevate my leg rather than while I'm walking.  The pain is intermittent and will feel better when I wake up in the morning and feel okay during the day while I'm working, but when I get home and put my feet up, the burning pain starts and doesn't subside until late in the evening. 

    In the past, the pain has lasted for as long as a week and then subsided for a week.  Recently, it started again.  My doctor ordered some blood tests to determine if the cause was from my medicines or a possible clot.  The determination was no. I'm taking armour thyroid and estrogen.  About 2 1/2 years ago, my doctor prescribed daily aspirin therapy as well as 2,000 mg fish oil and B100.

    What could be causing this?

    I have the same symptoms, but the pain involves the tops of my feet as well.  Recently I've started feeling the pain in my thigh bones as well.


    Since it it both feet & both shins, I have to rule out any injury. 

    Since my feet aren't cold,  I can rule out circulatory problems.

    Since it is worse when I am not on my feet, I can rule out pressure.

    I don't have diabetes or high blood pressure.


    I've combed the web looking for similar symptoms and/or diagnosis.

    Please let me know if you find anything.

                  Each night toward the end of my sleep ,I have what seems like shin splints on the front of my lower legs. It's bad enough to where I need to get up and walk around. I can't figure out what's causing it. I'm 66 years old and the only exercise I get is swimming.
