Our expert says:
Sometimes, you can have a stress fracture, which feels the same as shin splints in the beginning, but then continues for longer. You need an x-ray of the shins, as well as physiotherapy, and most likely a few weeks of rest from running, doing low impact exercise (but the physio will guide you on this). Good luck and I hope that you can start running again soon!
