You can get pain on the inside of the tibia where muscles and tendons attach if you have overloaded the lower leg. You can do this for example if you run and walk more than usual.
The trouble is usually called meningitis, although it is not really an inflammation, but an overload injury.
Most people get good from the hassle, but some may need treatment of meningitis. To avoid long-term problems, it is good to do something for them as soon as possible.

Symptoms of meningitis
When you have so-called meningitis, it can hurt the inside or the front of the thigh bone. The legs can feel stiff when you walk after sitting still for a while. The first steps usually hurt, but when you have been gone for a while, it feels less. You can get a painful pain forward in the evening if you’ve been walking all day.
Initially, you are in pain after you exert yourself, but if you continue to exercise, the pain will come during the activity itself.
When and where should I seek care?
If you do not recover well from the problems on your own, you can contact a physiotherapist or a health center.
Treatment of meningitis
You should rest from the activity that triggered the inconvenience until you are no longer in pain.
In the meantime, you can exercise without stressing your lower legs as much, for example by cycling or swimming. You should also think about wearing sturdy and good shoes. Sometimes an orthopedic insert for the foot can help.
If the trouble does not go away in a few weeks, you can contact a physiotherapist, also called a physiotherapist, a naprapath or chiropractor.
If you have severe and long-term problems, you can be helped by an operation. Most will be fine afterward, but it will take at least three months before you can be physically active as usual again
