Sounds like you could have a stress fracture. I too had a physio telling me it was shin splints over and over again. When i was pain free and started running again it would be back with a couple of weeks or so. I had an x-ray at hospital as i was almost unable to walk it got so bad and they showed me i had a stress fracture. And they also showed me where one had previously healed, which may have been one before when i thought it was splints.
All your sysmptoms sound the exact same as mine, i would recommend seeing a sports therapist rather than a physio. They tend to work more on correcting the issue that gives you your injury rather than just dealing with it there and then and sending you on your way like a physio does.
I've had a groin strain for best part of 6 weeks now and can't seem to shake it off. No matter how much ice i put on it, anti-inflamatries i take or stretching and massaging of it i do the pain still remains. Does anyone have any fixes or remedies that have worked for them in the past??
