With the robust variety of folks who frequent this board, I'm sure someone has had the same problem I have.
For the past 5-7 years (It's been a while, not exactly sure just HOW long), about this time each year, my shins really start to hurt (not the skin, rather the bone itself). The position of this pain runs approximately 2 inches in length vertically in front & on both sides on both my legs near the top of my boot. It "feels" like my lower legs get bruised. This gets to a point where I can't even cross my legs, or rest them on a coffee table, etc. After ski season is over, it usually takes 3-4 weeks for MOST of the pain to go away, but 6-8 weeks later, if I'm pressing around on the bone, I still feel it.
I have tried different boots & multiple adjustments (duct tape, add plastic here, remove it there, etc).
I ski 3-5 days every week. By Feb 1 each year, it almost brings tears to my eyes just to walk in ski boots.
I'm sure someone here has had this before and has a solution to my pain. Is it the bone, or could this be muscle?
I'm about to start looking into another pair of boots for next season since my current Heads are shot. Is there something I should look into to fix this problem? My last pair of boots were Technica TNT-RS (Blue-silicone injected). Both the Technica's & the Heads have injected tongues. Could this be causing my pain?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
