shin pain after lunch

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Several times I've gotten sharp, crampy pain in the muscle in my shin (tibialis anterior, I think), as if my boot is way too tight or something. But it isn't. It usually (maybe always) happens after lunch. Any ideas?


I'm in Lange WC120s with Boosters. ... I unbuckle during lunch time (not all the way).

Bumping to see if anyone knows what causes this ... in Whistler at the end of Feb, those muscles actually cramped up on me, fully, while I was skiing. It made it hard to turn, to say the least. It happened not after lunch, but after skiing a bit and then riding the Peak 2 Peak gondola (ie, a break in action out of my skis).


At lunch I took off my boots and extended my ankles; seems like dorsiflexion is the culprit.


The funny thing is that since then, it hasn't really happened at all. I think that around the same time this alleviated, I started buckling my instep buckle, as the boots were too tight there to buckle for the past season and a half (without cutting off circulation), but obviously have been packing out.


I'm thinking this is all related, but I don't quite know how? I would like to prevent the cramping in the future ... understatement!
