Very sharp, searing pain in lower leg above ankle

Hi! I am in a lot of pain. You are not my doctor, but I was wondering if anyone has felt similar symptoms. This morning when I woke up, it seemed as if a very large spider was biting a very specific spot on my lower right leg, sort of below the calf but above the ankle, and in the front (pic of location of pain here
). In terms of pain, it is 10/10. The pain lasts for 5-10 seconds, then fades away. Throughout the day, it has returned.
I ran some errands in town and walked around for about 45 minutes -- for that period of time, I felt no pain. It seems to return when I sit for too long or lie down. I have taken some ibuprofen and am currently icing it. What on earth could this be, and have any of you experienced anything similar?
