So i've finally got the motivation to start working out and i've been run/walking 30 min a day. I've gotten to the point where i actually WANT to workout and am excited about it. Well it turns out 4 days into my workout i got shin splints and i just ran through the pain on the 5th day. They say that you should stop running or it will get worse, but i don't want to stop because i'm finally doing what i need to do for myself! Any suggestions on how to keep working out and deal with shin splints? Or should i stop with the chance of not starting again for years.Answer Question

Stress fracture When shin splints are not responsive to treatment, your doctor may want to make sure you do not have a stress fracture. A bone scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can often show if a fracture is present. The diagnostic tests, causes of shin splints, and treatment regimens all bear a similarity and relationship to stress fractures. It is possible that there is a relationship between shin splints and stress fracture, but this has not been clearly identified.
