After using the famous search button, I have come to the fact that I may have shin splints. It started about 2 weeks ago, running started to hurt, and it got even worse when I stopped. I noticed it hurts less when training ( warming up ) without shoes. The shins hurt me on the inside, close to the ankle. Its getting a bit better, but it still hurts me if I do basicly anything which involves impact on the floor. So my question is what is the best way to heal them? Ive read lots of the posts and Im not really sure what to think. I have stopped jogging, will buy better shoes before I go jogging once it gets better, will stop running on hard surface, and I will try to correct my running posture, which someone mentioned is important in prevention aswell. But meanwhile I would like them to get healed as fast as possible, and I dont really understand correctly what I can do about it. Is resting the only thing? For how much longer should I rest? Should I go see a doctor? Should I ice it or something? It doesnt hurt by itself when I dont run the same day. Im not completely sure that I have shin splints and Ill only be happy if I do not, but if I do, please give me some advice that I did not write here.
