After running an autumn marathon, I have been pretty much out of action due to low ankle and pain either side of my shin in my right leg. I have been for MRIs (diagnosed as ligament damage in the anterior tibiofibular joint) and also been told I have chronic compartment syndrome in my lower right leg.
I have been strengthening the calf, rollering, icing etc....doing as told but no better . I am now at my wits end. I have been a runner for going on 12/13 years and this is the longest I have been out and have no idea where to turn. I am not looking for any further diagnosis but was looking for advice or if anyone else could help get me through these dark days........winter running is my forte and I am totally lost.
I was wondering if anyone on here could help,..... I am in a similar position re shin pain. It started during my first longish run after chester marathon at the top of my right foot and extended upwards throughout my right shin. It got worse once I stopped running and now is agony when I walk.
physio said it could be chronic compartment syndrome but I haven't run for 2 weeks and with regular icing, calf stretches and rollering I would have thought it should have been getting getter by now. I am absolutely distraught both from lack of running and pain....
