Shin pain. No bruising or injury. No swelling. No heat or redness. Ice and rest help a tiny bit. Roll ankle makes pain unbearable.

In brief: Stretch muscles

"Shin splint" pain w/ no injury is best treated w/NSAIDs ( ibuprofen), stretching of your lower leg muscles ( w/ theraband) and weight loss.
If no improvement consult w/ an orthopaedic surgeon for definitive diagnosis and examination.Lower limb alignment can predispose to shin pain. Other diagnoses(i.e) stress fractures,for instance have to be ruled out. Best of Luck!
