Think I may have shin splints?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. When i start running my shins hurt a little, then it goes away but returns after my run. If i touch my shins there is quite a sharp pain. Anybody had this and anything i can do to minimise it happening?
  2. Stop running. Learn to stretch. Do it gently. Go and see a doctor. Get a massage - not one with a happy ending, although it would take your mind off it.

    You can't run this off, like they say you can with a stitch.
