Okay, so I’ve been dealing with a pain in my left shin for a while, they aren’t shin splints, I doubt it’s any kind of stress fracture, and I thought it was ECS, but it doesn’t seem to fit the bill. The pain is located it seems where the patellar tendon is. I’ve been dealing with it for a long time and the pain got prgressively worse when I would do squats and leg presses. I took off after the pain got incredibly intense after one squatting session. I rested for roughly six weeks from any squatting or lower leg activities aside from deadlifts. The pain for the most part went away but then if I didn’t get enough sleep one day, it was back slightly.
I started squatting again, doing fine until I hit up box squats,
Right before I sat down with a heavy weight I felt a small pull and the pain shot through, I dropped down my weight and started doing sets of ten versus my usual Waterbury scheme. The pain was less but it still hurt, It hurts when I bend my knee or when I press against the area. Anyone know what the hell this could be, and how to get it to stop?
