 Is this pain normal?
FuschiaNovember1980    10:40am Jun 9 2017

So I broke my tib/fib 9 months ago and got my boot off in mid-March. It's been three months now of walking and no restrictions. Still doing my daily physio exercises, but my ankle/shin just hurt all the time. I shouldn't say all the time- but definitely walking. It's like a shin-splint pain and lately it's keeping me from evening/morning walks and walking more purposefully.

The last time I saw the physiotherapist's assistant, he told me to ice it after and elevate. And while that is restorative, I'm not sure if it's helping the actual day-to-day pain.

I'm so anxious to get back to running and I was told to just do it, but dear god it hurts and since it feels like shin splint pain my intuition is to not run through the pain.

And I still limp. Anyone else who's further along in recovery experience this and perhaps can shed light on if this is normal or if I should talk to the doc about other types of therapy or whatnot?
