Comment from: Shin Splints, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: February 17

I too used to run a lot and had trouble with shin splints. They are so painful! I would take Tylenol or Ibuprofen a couple times a day as well as lots of stretching and icing. When I was able to do that often, the pain was greatly relieved.
