Let me brief you.
Shin splint is a medical diagnosis and without an opportunity to physically examine the affected area, it is inappropriate for me to arrive at the diagnosis.
But based on your description, it does sound like the symptoms are aggravated by physical exercise.
You would need to rest the area.
If there is considerable swelling, you need to ice it.
Pain medicines can give you temporary relief.
But if the problem continues to persist, it requires to be evaluated and managed further.
I would definitely like you to be seen by an orthopedic surgeon.
He/she can physically examine the areas affected and acknowledge the trauma sustained.
can you suggest me a orthopedic surgeon in bangalore
He/she might consider ordering for routine blood tests or an X-ray before arriving at a diagnosis.
Accordingly a long term solution can be planned.
May I know which part of Bangalore are you from?
I am from Vijaynagar
I am not aware good specialist in that area of Bangalore. But if you are ok with other locations, I shall give you some names.
Alternatively you may visit the nearest multidisciplinary hospitals and find the HOD of orthopedics there.
Perhaps Global hospital is close to that part of town.
You can try that or any other orthopedic centre.
