Short or long term?: It is common within 48 hours of treatment to have temporary symptoms like this in other parts of the body, then they go away. If its been longer than that, see if there is a needle bruise there. That could take a week or do to go away.

May not be anything: I doubt there is a connection, however, if you had a needle placed in the shin that is bothering you, there may be some nerve irritation in that area. Look and see if there is any redness, swelling of the area in question that may give you a clue for a potential skin infection. Try a cold compress to begin with.
