I haven't been able to run since Dec 06 because of crushing burning pains in my shins (no, not shin splints, I've had those). Physio referred me (via GP) to orthopaedic surgeon. All feel sure this is compartment syndrome. Saw ortho in July and had a call yesterday to say I need to organise pressure studies (as not done on NHS). They have given me a place to contact "Where we send all the athletes".
I feel so stupid: I am definitely not an athlete andI feel really embarassed about going. However, given that this is the only way to start the road to returning to running I feel I should go through with it.
Any tips on how to not feel a twit when I get there?
