It is called tibial band pain. The tibial band is actually this area which goes from the hip all the way down to the foot on the outside of the leg. The tibial band actually is stressed when you do exercises like running, repetitive strain, those types of things. People who have external rotation at the hips are also more likely to have tibial band pain. The best way to deal with it is actually to stretch it. One way is to put one foot in front of the other and try to touch the toes. That will actually stretch it out and help with it.
