My Shins Hurt


i used to regularly go for my long walks but nowadays i cant because my legs (left shin) starts hurting after just 1 round. the local doctor gave me cal-d for calcium deficiency. If i keep taking those calcium tablets, i can walk but as soon as i stop taking them, the severe pain is back.

It is advisable that you should have fresh serum calcium and vitamin D levels checked. Meanwhile continue the medicines. We have to rule out other possibilities by examination. Chronic exertion compartment syndrome and berger's disease should be ruled out as well.

You have, what is ordinarily known as "shin splints". Google it. For any
further advice I recommend you see an orthopaedic surgeon.

Thank you all the respected doctors. I feel important receiving answers from all the well known doctors. Much appreciated. I visited an orthopedic surgeon here close to where I live through Marham. He has prescribed me some medicines. He put me on evion, and 2 others plus advised me to continue those calcium tablets. I have his prescription. Let me try uploading it!. I can get done the recommended tests from any lab?
