Patient : I have really bad shin pain and have had for 18 months and its really bad even though i stopped sport and dance for 9 weeks last year; when i started again the pain got worse. I have a painful dent in my left shin on the same leg I had patellar tendonitis lastyear. What do you think it is. I have tried ibuprofen and the doctor told me it was growing pains but I really dont think so as it is sore to touch and worsens when I do sport and after sport.
