Lower Leg Pain

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I know this post was from a while ago...but, do you still have the same problem?  Did you figure out what the problem was?  I have the exact same pain and can not pinpoint what is causing it.  I ignored the pain and just popped some ibuprofen to ski 3 days in a row, and then couldn't walk for days.  I looking for any advice from other folks that have had the same problem (my ski partners all think I'm crazy and have never heard of this type of problem).

I do ski hard, off piste, fast, and will tackle most anything. Last week I rented 178 Mantra's, had one of the best days ever, skied great - went up again six days later and had to leave because of pain. I guess it has to be the boots? Nothing else left except a physical therapist meeting ... just to see what is the deal. Anyone ever experience this? Any suggestions? Maybe it;s my damn boots? Any boot suggestions? My foot has been described as med width - maybe d, lower volume, med - high arch, flat heel area - does not protrude, skiiny lower legs, high calf ... lange's, falcons, dalbello's? ... thanks.
