Will running cause indent on shin?

Hi there, I m an adult male, 40yrs old and just started going to the gym. i notice my socks leaving an indent on the front of my shin, but I have no pain there. I can press my finger down and it leaves an impression for a few min. I read up on shin splints, but I have no pain there. Is this just normal swelling from using the treadmill?

Hi,

Get all your routine blood test done like CBC, blood sugar, LFT, KFT. Also, get your ECG and echo done. As per your age, there are lot of reasons for it.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
