Stress from running can cause pain around the shin
Sudden changes in activity such as running and exercise, or even hard surfaces such as footpaths can cause shin pain.
Symptoms people often describe can range from difficulty running, feeling of tightness or cramping in the calf/legs, and sometimes even foot/heel/knee pain.
In some people, shin pain can become quite severe and ultimately limits exercise and training.
