Aching in lower shin region

I have been playing football for about seven weeks now. At training and during games my left lower shin region aches every time i run and sometimes for several days after. The ground we train on is very hard. Should I rest it up for a few weeks? Can someone help me?

    You might just have shin splints OR it might be a stress fracture. Lower leg pain should be checked out by a doc because it *could* be a sign of something serious but these serious things are fortunately very rare. But just in case see your doc.

    In the mean time, reduce pain with Ice and rest.

    Hope that helps,
