Guess what? I made it to my goal of going 2 weeks without running to let me shins heal!
And guess what else?
My dumb shins still hurt! I’m so angry at them for not being better yet!
I’m RICE-ing like a mad woman (resting, icing, compressing, and elevating). I’m also foam rolling and stretching. And the pain remains.
I went to the doctor (internal medicine) last week about the problem, but she turned out to be the dumbest doctor I have ever encountered, so that was a) not helpful and b) super annoying!
So…I guess I’ll keep on with my RICE-ing. Hoping that things pay off in the form of me being able to run again soon. I’m really sad about this. I’m not going to run until the pain is completely gone…or at least that’s what I’m saying now!
Have you ever consulted a sports medicine doctor? How do you know it’s time to consult a sports medicine doctor?
