Had the Same Symptons
Anon_227545 posted:
I have the SAME symptoms to a T!!! I went to the doctor, did the ultra sounds etc. Ruled out the blot clots. I was told by my doctor that the issue is Shin Splints and to get orthotics, but i'm not convinced because when I do other physical activity (baseball, volleyball, running) i'm fine. Am very puzzled. But the swelling usually occurs in the summer and happens after sitting for a while or running errands. Still looking into things. I'm now wearing orthopedic sandles, but the swelling still comes and goes. Will keep everyone posted. As anyone's doctor told them it was shin splints?
