Lately i have been experiencing pain when i walk for any length of time at a fairly steady page (14 minute mile). When i walk normally or, im at rest there are no issues however, as soon as i pick up the pace my legs start to hurt immediately. Its not a normal kind of hurt - the outer calf is burning and very tight and it causes me to have to stop walking. I have tried stretching, increasing potassium, etc... but it has not had any impact. Soon after i stop, the pain subsides and does not bother me any more.
I went to the doctors and they ordered some tests for PAD (although he thought i was too young for PAD) and bloodwork however, i have not yet had these tests, as i was hoping the issue would remedy itself.
Any thoughts or feedback is appreciated.
