    Hi just a quick question can you get Dom’s in *text deleted* shins or is any soreness in shins automatically shin splints?
    Thanks

    When do you feel the soreness? When you're sat down or running/walking down stairs?

    Usually if you feel soreness in or close to the shin bone, it's considered shin splints

    Have you recently started running/upped your mileage, etc?

    Sore shins isn't always shin splints, it might just be your muscles getting used to the phys youre doing

    Muscle pain is different to shin pain, especially doms related soreness. Your shins can't get doms

    Maybe he's talking about the muscle on the outside of his shin

    You can get “doms” in your anterior tibial muscles (attached to your shins) but it should settle within 2-3 days. It’s that soreness that feels worse after rest then eases with activity. Hope that helps.

    Nothing when sitting or running st all, it’s sore when I bend into the squat position to pick something up not painful at all but just enough to notice if you know what I mean, also feels like that if I jump when landing, just being cautious don’t want to turn into a major problem as been making good progress

    If you don't feel it when you run, that's a good sign; Normally shin splints is felt from an impact.
    Could be that your muscles are tight/imbalanced around that area so I'd recommend stretching and massaging your legs, and trying to pinpoint where the pain is coming from. People commonly have tight/weak calf and soleus muscles so focus on thise to begin with.
    Obviously very hard to 'diagnose' an injury over the internet though.
    Best of luck
