|I have a pain on the left side of my left leg extending from underneath my knee down to almost the ankle.
I first noticed after doing some stretched my physical therapist gave me for the illotitial (sp?) band. I had never had pain here before.
Is it possible i hurt something while stretching?
I've jumped up to some pretty high mileage for me but my right leg is fine so I'm perplexed as to what going on with my left.
Anyone know what this might be?

|Your IT Band runs from the hip, the side of the knee, and down into the lower calf. When my IT Band problem flares up, it hurts the worst in the outside of my calf.
If you've kicked up your mileage suddenly, I would blame this more so than stretching, although stretching too aggressively can be harmful.
