Patient : Hi there,
I am a 16 year old female distance runner. I have recently been experiencing pains in both my shins on the medial side. It is kind of like a burning sensation and is there all the time. I was wondering if this is growing pains -as I still have alot more growing to do and randomly gained 1kg this week without changing my diet (and I do not yet get my period) or shin splints, or something else? It also feels like a bad bruise on both shins just below the knee when I press on it but there is no sign or bruising
