I've been having some pain in my lower right shin and calf - first it
started off on the front inside part of my shin so I thought it was shin
splints, now it has moved farther inside, more on the lower part of my calf
and still the front/inside of my shin and it hurts almost all the time now.
I'm training for the Rock and Roll Marathon and have been increasing
mileage really slowly, but I did recemtly start doing speed work each week.
I've also been icing and taking NSAIDS.
Thanks for any help! I appreciate it.
Jen, Get checked for stress fractures! A bone scan is the test of choice - I
think that is your next step! Let me know what you find. Also - get a
biomechanical check-up - perhaps you need orthotics. The muscles of the shin are
really controlling the foot - hence my reasoning. Good luck
