Painful swelling, blotchiness in lower legs when running

I have been running for five years now (four in the military, one out) but just recently in the last couple months I have been experiencing red blotchiness, swelling, and painful stiffness in my lower legs when running. It has gotten to the point where I ve gone from a daily 10k to barely able to run more than a few minutes at a time before the pain becomes too intense.
