So in Volleyball we would run around the gym doing the karioke(criss cross motion of our legs while running sideways). My lower left leg would get a lil tingly feeling and i thought it might just be crampin or something. So i would finish the warm up and it would be fine. Then later it progressed to like a stabbing pain and carried into the rest of practice...I also remember having to dive for a ball and landing very ******n the affected area. For a while I thought it was outter shin splints. So I would often forget about the pain because it only happen when exerted to an extent. So I got through volleyball season. Then basketball came and with the break in between I thought my leg would be fine. It was fine for running and everything but then we started this jump program and it triggered my leg pain all over again. It would get this swelling senation and painful throbbing feelings. So I didn't end up playing the whole season. Then came Track. For warm ups we ran an 800m and at first my leg would get tired just doing this. So I started taking MSN and that helped immensely and I was able to run pain free. But on long distance runs it would hurt again. The longer I would go the tired it would get and the symptoms would increase. Being a sprinter I didn't have to do long workouts and I was just as fast as ever. So during track I had like no leg pain and I thought I was getting better. I finished the year and it was all good. The summer was good. Then I started college and the pain has come back but now it happens when I just power walk to class or now just plain walk. It is really weird...I don't know what is wrong with me. I developed early on some spider veins i think on the inside of my thigh and small stretch mark looky things on top of thihg. I've been to a physical therapist and like two other people but they just thought I had inflmation going on and needed to ice. But obviously there is something perty wrong cause it's almost been a year. It kills me because I am a major athletic type and I feel helpless.
