As I was lacing up my running shoes this morning, I accidentally pressed against my shin. I had a sharp pain from the inner part, where the shin pain was.<br>
It does not hurt to walk around or run.<br>
However, this does concern me that the "shin splints" I was dealing with a couple weeks back were not shin splints, but a stress fracture (in both legs, worse in the left.)<br>
So far, I think my plan is to continue my easing back into the swing of things. If the pain returns without me pressing on it, then I become a cyclist for a few weeks. (On my hybrid. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> Oh, one day I shall have a road bike!)<br><br>
I hope that's not the case... I'm hoping it's just some residual soreness. Especially since, if it is stress fractures, it's my own fault for spending almost two months running without my insoles. (I finally got them in. Yes, I am that lazy sometimes. Run ten miles, sure... trim some insoles-- yeah, later.)<br>
What do y'all think? In the past, I have overdone it-- but I like to think I have learned from the 4 months I spent running with a stress fracture and mild pneumonia until I was finally hospitalized back in high school. (I think I was perhaps the most moronic kid ever to be let into the gifted program. Needless to say, I think I might have had issues back then!)<br><br><br>
Any opinions welcome, even if it's something I don't want to hear. (only if I really need to hear it though. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">)<br><br>
EDIT: Went for another run. Feels tight, but not bad pain--- might just be from being hyper-aware of it.

i feel like you could press anywhere on my body and it hurts. if it does not hurt while you are running, i think you are fine. if you notice localized pain there, then there is a need to be concerned.

During running now too. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
Fiddlesticks....<br>
I'm going to ask my doctor on Thursday. I'm allowed to do that even if I'm coming in for something else, right?

A bone scan is the only test, though, that will confirm if it is a stress fracture. Mine didn't hurt while running either til they got really bad. Check it out NOW before it gets any worse, or so you can just laugh at your hyperawarenes if it's nothing.
