I've been struggling for a while with medial tibial stress syndrome...have had physio which has been a huge help, but I still have a slight twinge where the pain was. It's not bad enough to be actually painful when running, more of an increased awareness of that spot/dull ache. I'm just wondering if this is a normal part of recovery that will fade over time or if it means I'm not fully recovered yet and it will start getting worse as I run more?

I don't want to risk getting hurt again as I'm supposed to be doing my first half marathon in May and would like to get to training for it properly!

I know I should ask my physio therapist, and I will when I see him again next week but I just wondered if anyone else had experienced the same thing and what the outcome was?

I had this a couple of years ago and I recall something similar. There would have been a spot on the shin that was very sore if touched. Has that gone?

The sore spot when pressed is gone. When pressing along my shin I find it hard to pinpoint exactly where the pain was, it's just a slight sensation when running. Is this what you had? How did you get on?

When the sore spot was gone I did some easy running and it was fine. I didn't have any recurrence. There was a tiny bump where the sore spot had been.

Got something to say?
