In brief: Pain
Typicallly shinsplints are overuse injuries from running, or playing sports on hard surfaces.
The muscles that attach to the tibial become inflamed making sports and other activities difficulty. Sometimes it is impotant to get an xray or an mri to rule out a possible stress fracture which is more serious.
