So I haven't been running for very long time, but lately I've been running frequently. I've been very careful to take it slow and give myself rest in between runs. However, the last time I ran a few times a week (only for about 2 miles or so each time) I experienced shin pain after. It was so bad that I decided not to run until it was no longer painful. This lasted for over a week. It was not my whole shin that was painful, only a very small area was extremely tender. It hurt to touch that spot, and for a few days I felt pain even when standing for long periods of time. After I felt it was okay to run again I did so, only to experience the same thing again (maybe even worse this time). How do I know if it's MTSS or if there's something more going on? Also, my other shin is painful as well, but not nearly as bad and that too is only a small area. Thanks!
