What treatment is suggested for pain near shin area?

I had an aneurysmal bone cyst in my fibula nearly three years ago. Just this year, I started having pain near my shins. I thought this correlated with my tumor, but my surgeon said it didn t. Now I know it must be shin-splints, but I have been very loyal to stretching, and the pain still won t go away. Just recently, I have had pain with my whole popliteal. This happens when I walk. The pain gives me goose bumps because it hurts so bad. It s a stabbing pain. What should I do about this? What could it be?

Hi first thing is that your doctor is right when he says that shin pain is not due to aneurysmal Bone Cyst . In my opinion your shin pain , which was earlies in popliteal region , and comes on walking could be due to local problems or referred pain from spinal problem. I would start with pain killers , muscle relaxant, rest and physiotherapy for 10 days and if no relief then I would go for investigations like MRI.
