Is this Spasticity?

For a few weeks now I have been having real trouble with my legs, specifically my lower legs (ankles and Shins) and walking. It started out just being like shin splints but its getting worse and if I try to walk with any speed I am in agony and my legs feel so stiff and painful I have to drag myself on, this is for short distances too :( Is this spasticity? I don't have any leg spasms or night issues its just walking. My right leg seems to be worse and I have noticed that my calf and foot seem bigger on that side, like water retention swollen compared to my left as my shoes feel tighter. I don't want to go on yet another drug but is this something I should tell my nurse?
