Please tell me I'm not alone here.
I am experiencing pain around both shins while running, I know the first reaction is to say its shin splints but looking at the description of the condition it seems to be something else.
The pain isnt just down the front of my shins, in fact it feels as though its at the back of the bone and all the muscle surrounding the shine bone hurts.
The problem is that sometimes I don't get any pain at all but others I can practically walk. It also takes a good 30 mins to wear off too.
I've tried stretching before and after but nothing seems to stop it.
The reason for me writing this is I ran yesterday with no pain at all but was woken at 3am with excruciating pain in both lower legs and had to take Ibuprofen to sleep.
Anybody else experienced this and if so any ideas on how to prevent it?
