Find a good physiotherapist first and get a diagnosis to make sure what you are suffering from and then get some treatment.  Go to a physio who specializes in sports injuries.  Most health clubs will have someone on their staff who can help you.

Re: Shin splints

Shin splints are quite severe problems.  You need to back off running more or less entirely if you are suffering from them.  Warm up stretches won't do zilch!  They are the result of over training - or training on too hard surfaces.  They are akin to, and a start of, a breakage in a bone!  Treatment is to lower your mileage and to run on soft surfaces only.  These type of injuries do not respond well to aggressive 'run-through the pain barrier' approaches.  They can eh more or less 'knacker' you for a long time if you don't rest enough,
