Can you tell me how to get control over my shin splints and be able to run with no problem?

In brief: Shin splints

Shin splints are caused by tight calf muscles and sneakers that are not providing you enough support.
Some suggestions, Get new sneakers. Start stretching your calf muscle before and after running and get a pair of orthotics at your local running store. If the pain doesn't improve see your local podiatrist

Ice shins 4x/day and rest till the pain subsides, If not better see your doctor.
