Since I’ve started training in muay Thai I have been experiencing pain in my shins. At first it was bearable, but lately it seems to be getting much worse. When I’m not doing anything my shins have a constant dull ache to them. When I run, jump rope, or kick Thai pads the dull ache becomes a sharp stabbing pain that is almost unbearable. I am told this is a condition loosely referred to as "shin splints". I am also told that once this condition is diagnosed there is no way to get rid of it, other than to stop what ever physical activity you are doing. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this or knows someone that does. But it would appear that if this won't/can't go away, I may be done with muay Thai to avoid any long term damage to my legs.
