More than one answer: If you are a runner then shin splints could be present. Other causes could be peripheral neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease (poor circulation), or connective tissue disease.

Yes: Burning and itching are common with hemorrhoids. Sitz baths and stool softeners can help. If your symptoms persist, see your doctor. You might benefit from steroid suppositories.
