Shin pain...need help

Just yesterday night I started noticing a shooting pain in my left shin. Its on the outside of the shin and the pain extends down to my ankle.

I’ve pretty much isolated it to either my tibialis anterior or my peroneus longus.

I haven’t been doing much work in the gym lately because its competition season for speedskating and I’m training 4x a week on the ice as well as competitions approximately 2 weekends a month. However, the work that I have been doing is mostly squats, deadlifts and some O-lifts.

If anybody has had the same problem before or has some suggestions; possibly a knee brace or something of the sort, then that would be great. Thanks.
