Thank you for asking at EHF
I read your question and i understand your concern. Pain in body is normal. Just stay mobilized and if there is no swelling or color change in shin then no worries. Take some Tylenol and Advil for the pain relief.

I hope it helps. Consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purpose only.
