Shin Splints: Oh the Pain

Every sinced I walked yesterday I have had really bad shin plint pain.  Normally shin plints don't concern me cause they go away after a day or two, but I am wondering why all of a sudden I have shin splints.  It has been a good 7 weeks or so since I started excercising so why am I getting shin splints now. 

Some causes of Shin Splints:
  • Overuse
  • Running on uneven surfaces or hard surfaces
  • Shoes with poor shock absorption
  • weak leg muscles
  • Tight Muscles
  • Flat Feet
So I read and research and based on my finds I have no idea what could have cause the shin splint flare up.  But know that it is rather painful.  Gonna take me some advil, my research suggested that, as well as icing my legs.
