I've been experiencing a weird pain in my shin for the last four days. It's right below my knee, along the inner part of the tibia, but not the muscle (see circled portion of the image below):
I don't get it, there's just bone there so I don't know what's causing it to hurt! I walk daily (7-10km) and swim every other day and the only thing that really aggravates it is swimming freestyle. So I've stopped that but kept up with the walking and swimming breast stroke. Still, no relief. If anything, it's a little worse. I wonder if I need to stop all of my lower body activity until it's gone? Take ibuprofen? Ice?
I've read low-impact stuff like swimming is good for an injury, but in this case it seems to be doing me more harm than good!
Thanks for the advice.
