After lots of good advice I'm taking my shin splints to get checked out at the docs. I hate going to the docs. As soon as my large frame walks thru the door they mentally diagnose me as fat, lazy and offer me slimming world vouchers. They also book me in for a diabetes blood test. ALWAYS. Since I was 19. It's been 23 years, I'm still not diabetic doc, get over it!!
Really hoping that I can convince today's doc to look at me as a runner with a leg issue and focus on muscles and membranes etc. Not holding my breath though 😕
