What could cause painful shins when playing soccer, earlier had Tibia fracture?

I broke my tibia 4 years ago, had a rod and 4 pins, pins came out a yars later. Now in my senior year of college and playing soccer all through college I have harsh pain in my shin during practice and after til the next day. I took 2 months off figuring it would heal and it felt a lot better, so i decided to play again but the pain came back.

Hello,

Your symptoms could be related to local inflammation. For this reason, I recommend consulting with your attending physician and performing some tests:

- a leg X-ray study
- nerve conduction studies
- complete blood count, PCR, ESR for inflammation
- ASOT titer.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist

5 weeks ago I under went double jaw surgery and 2 weeks I had to have surgery again on my lower jaw cause I fractured my left side. My lower jaw on the left side clicks every time I open or close my mouth my oral surgeon just put elastics in 2 days ago to close my open bit and ever since then the clicking has gotten worse and the pain is unbearable it kills to open my mouth or even talk. On my left side where I had my fracture just below it I feel a space like I didn t when I first fractured the same side. What should I do? Wait and see if it will go away or call my surgeon? Did I fracture my jaw again or is a screw lose or could I just be a muscle issue

Hiya, I fell off my bike last week, slipped on a railway track and slammed my shin bone on the track, got up and carried on although in much pain. When I got to work my shin had swelled up quite large and bruising was immediate. I had it dressed and put a compression bandage on and carried on. five days later it is still slightly swollen and bruising is right down to my ankle and all around and I bumped it today which was extremely painful. I am biking and walking on it but take panadols to manage and it still hurts, although I am very careful how I walk with it to minimise the pain. what do you think, could it be cracked?
