Oh no not again a new ouch !

After weeks of running I have an excruciating pain in the centre of my left shin I can't actually pull my toes up at times even walking is pole axing me I have had a gait analysis haven't changed shoes have not over extended myself I warm up and cool down and to say I'm a tad miffed is an under exaggeration could this be the dreaded shin splints or a stress fracture I have slight swelling over the injury - volterol cream helps but at times I can't even weight bare HELP !!!

  • Oh no rfw! That sounds pretty unpleasant.

    Don't forget RICE - Rest Ice Compression Elevation - in other words, put your feet up for a few days and allow it to heal. I just hope it's one of those 'hurts' that comes from nowhere but vanishes just as quickly.

    Take care.

  • It could be shin splints. I've never had it but it is very painful. As the previous response advised RICE. If it doesn't clear up, get some advice from a sports physio. Use the Internet too for information re symptoms.
