Customer Question

Been having shin splint type pains in both shins for quite a while and discoloration has appeared (see pic 1) In pic 2 you will notice a horrible bruise but i dont remember hitting myself on anything. Is the bruising possible from some shin related condition?

It is unlikely that this is related to the underlying shin bone.
Most likely this is superficial thrombophlebitis which is presents with pain swelling and discoloration of the skin in the lower limbs.
