why do my shins hurt to the touch

Have you done any research on shin splints? Ideally, you are dealing with shin splints. That is not fun, but with treatment and some activity modifications, you can get rid of them. (Like if you are a runner, don t run downhill, and always make sure you are running heel, ball, toe instead of all toe-impact. ) However, since it has been years and years, you might be dealing with a stress fracture.


I have had both injuries and the stress fracture required me to take some serious time off. One other thing to look up on the net might be compartment syndrome. Your initial description sounds more like shin splints or stress fracture to me. Best wishes!
Shin splints are an exercise problem.


You get shin splints from overloading your leg muscles, tendons or shin bone. Shin splints happen from overuse with too much activity or an increase in training. Most often, the activity is high impact and repetitive exercise of your lower legs. This is why runners, dancers, and gymnasts often get shin splints.


Common activities that cause shin splints are: Running, especially on hills. If you are a new runner, you are at greater risk for shin splints. Increasing your days of training. Increasing the intensity of training, or going a longer distance. Doing exercise that has frequent stops and starts, such as dancing, basketball, or military training.


Have flat feet or a very rigid foot arches. Work out on hard surfaces, such as running on the street or playing basketball or tennis on a hard court. Do not wear the proper shoes. Wear worn out shoes. Running shoes lose over half of their shock absorbing ability after 250 miles (400 kilometers) of use.
