I've got a question about lower shin pain... Now I've had a look through a few of the threads on here and most of them seem to be talking about shin splints... I've had shin splints before and this isn't the same.
A few months ago I finished a run and experienced pain in my lower shin on my right leg, probably about 2/3 inches above my ankle. The pain is very localised and quite acute. If I run my fingers down my shin bone I can feel a small lump under the skin where the pain is. When it first occured the area was quite swollen, but would settle within a week. I laid off the running and stuck to the cross-trainer, rowing machine etc. The pain eventually eased and I attempted running again only for the pain to come back. I've been round this loop of resting and attempting to run again several times only to end up with the pain re-occuring.
I've seen a physio and GP with no real solution. I've also had an x-ray, which ruled out a stress fracture.
Can anyone offer any advice???
