    Hi, I got bad shin splints going up through early December until after one run I could barely put any weight on my right leg, my shin hurt so bad. I had a bad limp for a few weeks. Went to doc and they did the tuning fork test but it caused no pain, so no SFX. But I did not get an MRI or bone...

    Hello! I am training for the Brighton Marathon at the moment. Before Christmas I got Achilles Tendonitis which is affecting my ankle. It is really mild and only causes discomfort when I walk down stairs. My ankle is stiff when I run but I can run. I took two weeks off running over Christmas as...
