  • grotesque condition, the tibia mystery

    the left lower tibial BONE, it's not shin splints, hurts very much when i sprint and jump. but when i walk, no pain.

    it's the bone, man, and it's been lingering since last december. i'm out of action in rec league because i can't risk further injury.

    i ruled out a stress fracture because there is no pain when i walk. it's not muscular because i know what that feels like.

    it feels like the bone, man! but what could this be?!?!?

    i rule out a bone bruise because there was never any impact to the bone. can i have a bone bruise without direct impact??

    Sounds like something you should talk to a doctor about--there are a lot of things that could cause bone pain, and it sounds like the sort of thing that's better addressed by someone who can perform an exam than by a bunch of people on the internet.

          Well, have fun with that then. That'll give you a chance to work on your pistols.

              Are your toe and knee in alignment? My kid had tibial torsion when he was a toddler, though it worked itself out later. But it did make his walking and running a little off - enough that it could cause discomfort if he was older.

                  I'm serious! His left toe pointed toward the other foot just a bit and it made running harder!

                  Okay, I'll go play somewhere else...

                    The symptoms you describe point to "bonus eruptus." It's a terrible disorder where the skeleton tries to leap out the mouth and escape the body. Our one chance is trans-dental electromicide. I'll need a golf cart motor with a 1000-volt capacimator. STAT!

                        My first thought is a stress fracture. How do other exercises that put extra stress on your tibia feeling? Squats/pistols/box jumps/etc?

                          spur?

                          (still could be a stress fracture even tho you've ruled it out)

                          but you'll only know that from film...that those ppl in white coats look at...

                              If you get one of these , hit the end and then place the stem at the head of the bone, you'll be able to feel if there is a stress fracture. If so, the solution is just to rest up anyway. I wish there were more good chiropractors out there. There are some great ones, and there are some really sucky ones. Get yourself to a good one and they can get you x-rayed and at least help you figure out what is going on. Could be a nerve/alignment issue that is making the bone ache so badly.
