I think I have shin splints.. I'm pretty sure I had it before, then I didn't do anything for about 4 months and they went away. I started to run like crazy again, and played 4 hours and 30 minutes of football one night with a ton of people, after that I kept running and running cause I was so happy I didn't have pain in my shins/muscle anymore.
Buttt now I've plagued myself again. It HURTS like mad, I don't want to get a stress fracture from it so I must take action as soon as possible and do whatever it takes to heal them. (shins) I looked up on the internet and I'm 90% sure it is shin splints, cause it runs along the bone/muscle, and kills when I run.
Has anyone else had these? If so what'd you do to heal them? I hear to put ice on it for 20 minutes but is ice on the shin bone really good for the bone? ( I always thought having something cold on the joints/bone isnt good) so yeah or maybe is it ice the muscle beside the shin bone for 20 minutes?
Anyways any help I can get regarding this would be MUCH appreciated. I wannnnnna ruuuunnn.
