Sounds very similar to my experiences over the past month.
Mine suddenly came on - was running and developed a pain bottom front of shin. It felt like a little twinge so I wasn't overly concerned. Next evening I went for a run and it came on again, I stopped the run and THEN it was more painful. Next day I couldn't walk without pain.
At first I couldn't move my foot without the pain at the front of the shin - particularly pointing the toes up. No stress fracture showed on the x-ray but the dr in A&E seemed to think it was a stress fracture. Was on crutches and given an air splint.
Now its easier and I can walk and move my foot but I get a lot of aching moving into the foot and back of my leg etc. It's puzzling me as when I returned to the hospital the dr said it might just be bad bad tendonitis. It's been nearly 3 and a half weeks. I've been able to swim but now it seems to be stuck in the same state of a lot better but still getting a lot of aching and twinges when dorsiflexing. Will probably need another x-ray at some point maybe :/
