Painful leg, ankles, knee, boiling hot sensation, stress fracture ot shin splint. Meaning?

I ve noticed a very strange pain in my right leg as of late. It s a constant dull pain from my knee to my ankle (all around) and often times it feels boiling hot on the inside. See, I started a very intense workout regimen recently that involves a lot of running and leg work that I was not previously doing. Thus , it could very easily be a shin splint or a stress fracture , but I m concerned about DVT and other things of the sort.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain that you have in the leg is more likely to be due to stress or a muscle sprain due to an unusual exercise that you are doing now. This is not likely to be due to DVT. However a color doppler scan will help in confirmation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
