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?
