I have a pesky shin splint that doesn't want to go away. Actually, nothing showed up on the xray, but that's what the doc thinks it is. Granted, I am always doing something stupid like jumping off of stages at work or mountain climbing 1000th feet high, jumping around on boulders. Other than rest & ice, I would like some input on how to build my body stronger on the inside. Do deficiencys make the body weak and more prone to this? I was never in an accident nor do I remember any particular event hurting myself. Maybe I need a vitamin /mineral deficiency test?? I want to be strong & healthy! Welcome to being 41, huh. Blah. I want to go run and can't. The pent up energy is driving me nuts! Lol

I would verify my magnesium level is adequate.  There are some magnesium threads active currently.

Funny, Lola. Should I search the index for "shin splint?"

My 54 year old dh was in a "marathon" hike in New Mexico in March, so he was training by taking long, longer hikes.  Near the end of his training he developed shin splints, or one in one of his legs.
One thing that helped him was wrapping it in an ace bandage.  He knew about rest, elevation and ice and was doing that when he could also.  Pretty sure it was just from the high mileage he was doing.  Now he hikes more in the 4-6 mile range, which is much easier on the legs.

Hey, Slyparrot!  It's been a while!

I recommend arnica cream and magnesium.

I had a really bad case of shin splints a few months ago from doing a lot of plyometric workouts suddenly, and just put up with the pain (I used arnica cream but had to re apply it once an hour pretty much). I did those workouts (Insanity from beach Body) for a while, then switched to yoga, then started the series again, and this time I took L-Glutamine powder after every workout, and had zero pain. I don't know if it would work for you now, but it's worth a try...especially since it hurts sooo badly...I was going insane!
