It is possible that the side of your boot is contacting the ice if you're leaning too much. It could be one or a combinatin of several reasons. Maybe you got into the habit of leaning more than normal, and now that you're blade is worn enough after multiple sharpenings, you've reached a point where the boot is starting to contact the ice. Add to that that you're boot may have softened a bit over time so it now leans more than your foot does when you turn. But like AIREAYE is suggesting, this might all be solved by correcting skating technique. Start with concentrating on leaning your skates a bit less when you turn.
