Well over a year ago i began getting shin pain. I know it was completely my fault, I'd just started running, went straight into running half hours at a good pace with little to no research into gradually upping my mileage.
Ran through the pain quite a few times making the situation worse and eventually ended up 'googling' my situation to find i had shinsplints. So as much of the internet suggested, gave up the running, iced at took ibuprofen.
Cutting a massive story short, this didn't work so ended up at a sports therapist who gave me ultrasound and tens machine at £27 a turn....months later i couldnt afford to keep going and didnt feel it was getting any better.
Had gait analysis and bought £120 trainers.
Been to doctors who gave me strong anti-inflamatories.
I teach, so this summer holiday i have iced twice a day and emptied boots of nurophen! thought i was getting somewhere this week but woke up this morning and the right leg especially is as bad as its ever been!!!
Aside from the annoyance of not being able to run which i miss so much! I now cant do anything! even a bit of cycling at the gym flares it up.
