About the symptom

The pain of shin could be from the inflammation of the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue around your shin. It could be a result of overuse, injury, bone bruise, or stress fracture

Possible causes

  • osteoporosis

    Osteoporosis is a disease that makes your bones weak and brittle, resulting in the bone to fracture easily even with minor trauma or stress (for instance, after a simple fall). It may be caused due to long-term low calcium intake, estrogen deficiencies in women, and an inactive lifestyle.

  • Lumbar spondylosis

    A condition in which the backbones (lumbar spine) become damaged due to wear and tear. Risk factors include repetitive back strain, carrying heavy loads, and obesity.

  • Rickets Vitamin D deficiency

    Rickets is the softening and weakening of bones in children, usually due to an extreme and prolonged vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus from food. Insufficient vitamin D makes it difficult to maintain proper calcium and phosphorus levels in bones, which can cause rickets.

  • sickle cell disease
