Benjamin Eseroma , NASM Elite Trainer, Fitness, answeredIf you are having pain while you walk it is probably due to muscle imbalances. You need to stretch really well. If you happen to get a personal trainer to do an assessment you can have him/her show you how to stretch and correct imbalances. It really depends where and how bad they hurt. I had surgery for compartment syndrome, which is called fasciotomy surgery. As far as the itching it could be because of the rise in your body temp and change in weather (prickly heat).

If you feel pain when you walk, then you should consult a physician because this could be a sign of a skin disorder or other medical condition. One of the most common causes of itching of the legs is dryness of the skin. Prevent dry skin by applying a moisturizer to the legs before going out for your walk. If you have sensitive skin, then make sure to use a moisturizer that is fragrance and color free.
