Ah, quarantinitis! You likely have inflamation in the sheath around the tendon due to the loaded eccentric activity from the treadmill work. I would continue with your current plan of icing, and gradually return to unloaded walking before trying the vest again. If you have a bike, that should work fine in the interim.
So in the wake of quarantine I’ve had to spend more time on my treadmill, mostly weight vest hiking at 12% grade. Out of nowhere began having pain along the lower lateral aspect of my shin with crepitus, likely anterior tibialis tendonitis, it’s been 4 days of rest, with high dose NSAIDs, icing. Does not seem to be improving. Anyone have any experience with this or have any PT recommendations? Thanks!
