i started track this year, in 8th grade. i didnt do it last year and i have never had this problem. i have been telling my coach and he always tells me to sit, but we are not positive what it is becuase its only in one leg. but now since i am running at least 2 miles everyday the inside of my shin is hurting when ever i start to run. then i get this sharp pain inside of my shin. i think it is causing a stress fracture because i am also involved in soccer and basketball, and i am always running. i dont have any time off. but do you think this can be something serious and i should take some time off or should i just run thru it and ignore the pain?? thank you for your advice. i really need it because it hurts so bad!
