Thank you for coming back online.
The symptoms you have described of getting hurt by the muscle near your shin while running can be due to a condition called shin splints also called as Medial tibial stress syndrome.It is probably the most universally-known running injury. It is an inflammation of the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue around your tibia.
The most common symptom of shin splints is pain along the border of the tibia. Mild swelling in the area may also occur.
X-rays of the affected area taken as part of any investigative work-up in people with shin splints are typically reported as being entirely normal.
To treat this,first you need RICE formula:
· Compression (with a bandage)
- Although you have applied ice & it got worse,this is not due to application of ice but the symptoms got worse because of the condition.Ice the area on and off. Put ice in a plastic bag, wrap the bag in a towel.Do not apply ice directly to the skin. Wrap the icepack in a towel.The cold reduces the blood flow to the area and therefore reduces inflammation & hence the pain.
- Take tab. Ibuprofen 400mg from the counter. It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.
- Wearing an elastic compression bandage will prevent additional swelling.
- Take rest for 2-3 days.
All this will help you greatly.If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor for examination & tests and prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets cleared with these treatments.
So bot***** *****ne is there is nothing serious or dangerous here.Please follow the above measures.This will relieve your pain & other symptoms greatly.
Hope this helped.
