For the past 5 weeks, I've experienced pain in the right shin area. It's come on gradually, first starting in my calf after a half marathon and then after three races in three days wearing racing flats. The pain in mainly half way up my tibia and to the inside but it can move to my ankle, top of foot and to the outside of my shin.
2 X-Rays 2 weeks apart show no fracture or any change in that period. Ran a park-run last Saturday and had to stop.
I now have a small but painful bruise on my shin where the pain originates which aches all of the time. I can't run and intend on taking 6 weeks of none running time off. I have been aqua jogging and swimming.Elliptical trainer hurts to do.
If I foam roll the pain doubles for days after!
Any ideas what this could be? MRI scan refused by the hospital and the advice given was to simply take pain relief and rest.
Used to running 60 miles a week, could this be a stress fracture that isn't showing up on a standard X-Ray? Any ideas or help anyone could provide would be really helpful as I'm getting nowhere with the NHS and the pain has been here for 5 weeks now.
